The Book of Mormon!

Finally! After years of trying and failing to get tickets to this show I have done it!

I was meeting up with my lady for a Friday night date and really wanted to surprise her with something different, so I checked StubHub and managed to grab a pair of orchestra seats at a surprisingly reasonable price.

The main reason I wanted to see this show is I have always been a big fan of Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s work on South Park. When the show got going, I was pretty surprised how little I actually knew about the plot. The fact that the story focuses on an attempt to gain converts in Uganda was completely unknown to me going in, but that just made it even funnier.

I truly cannot think of anything not to like about this musical. The dialogue and lyrics are hysterical. The music tends to be a little bland at parts, but to me it came off as being broadway satire.

It’s hard to pick a favorite song from this work of comical genius, but if I had to pick it would be “Hasa Diga Eebowai.” This tune truly does not pull any punches and just sums up Parker and Stone’s humor and complete fearlessness when it comes to making light of serious and touchy subjects.

So, if you are looking for a show to see, do not hesitate to loosen the purse strings a tad and spring for tickets to this fantastic musical. You will laugh non-stop and won’t regret it.
