Parker, Stone and Lopez are men on a mission but, unlike the characters in their play, it is clearly not a mission from God. They are purposefully pushing the acceptable boundaries of musical theater and having a great time doing it.

If you haven’t seen “The Book of Mormon,” or need a new shot of irreverent satire which skewers anyone and everyone, this is an absolute go see production. If you are a language prude, religious fanatic, or aren’t in the mood for ridiculous delight, stay away. It’s everything a modern musical that is meant for pure entertainment, with a sip of philosophy, should be!
"The Book of Mormon” may no longer be the “it” show, thanks to the hip-hop “Hamilton” now ruling Broadway and the national touring scene (coming to Playhouse Square next summer). But “Mormon” hasn’t lost its edge, thanks in part to a remarkable new tour that opened Tuesday at Playhouse Square’s KeyBank State Theatre. The energy is palpable on both sides of the stage.
In short, this show is a hoot and a half, and it is performed with superb professionalism by this touring company. Something that is not always true when a show visits for just a short time. So go, laugh, smile. You deserve it.
