I am offended. While distastful, I wasn't offended by the offensive language, the racism, the bigotry, the pedophilia, the bodily function references, or the religious irreverance. What did offend me was the price I paid to see such an unfunny production. I was expecting much more. The cast does a good job, and the production has some witty moments that are very amusing, but I simply cannot understand the over the top reviews of this production. Unless you have a very immature sense of humor, this production simply isn't that funny and certainly not worth the price.

Spoiler alert: the winning joke is "I've got maggots in my scrotum". If you love South Park, rank humor (long running joke about trying to f*** the baby to try to get rid of AIDS; solved with a frog) and the thrill of the F-word said on a Broadway stage, then go for it. There is shock value, and the singing and dancing (one number all about dysentery -- "shitting in the water, drinking the water") are very well done even if the content is just plain stupid. I am not religious, so that part wasn't offensive or compelling -- sort of an interesting context -- but the rank language and bathroom humor as entertainment value on their own...eh, don't get it. But I realize that we are a very small minority, given the rave reviews and Tony awards.

Absolutely hilarious!!!!!!!
A journey of young Mormon men - fresh out of training centre. Paired with their companion and given their posting.
Irreverent and hysterical! I've seen many many live shows and this was amongst the best.
If swearing upsets you, this is not the show for you - but please take it in context as it is too clever and funny to miss

Was not expecting that, some of the material will be difficult to explain to the children. At least they didn't ask.

What a hoot. No wonder they call it the Musical of the Century. It is.

Not for the easily offended or up-tight religious zealots. Saw 6 great plays & this was the overthetop funniest. Worth the price of admission.
