Tickets from £20.00

Overview

South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone join forces with Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez for this satirical look at the Mormon faith which promises to outrage and entertain in equal measure.

The production opened directly on to Broadway (a rarity in the times of the out of town try out) back in 2011 and was an instant hit. A West End production quickly followed. The show received a staggering nine Tony Awards and four Olivier’s including Best New musical.

Response to the show has been monumental, with critics falling over themselves to sing its praises and it becoming one of the hottest tickets in the West End. The musical has really impressed as, as well as being hilariously shocking, it also perfectly conforms to the style of a traditional book musical.

The plot focuses on Mormon missionary, Elder Price, whose dreams of going to Orlando Florida are cruelly dashed when he is paired with the hapless Elder Cunningham and sent to a remote village in Uganda. In true Mormon style the boys remain optimistic of converting the local population but on discovering that the locals are terrorised by a warlord as well as dealing with poverty, famine and AIDS they realise that their task is going to be harder than they ever imagined.

The show contains more than one reference to Disney’s The Lion King and it takes punches at everything from organised religion to Starbucks in what is an endlessly entertaining ride.

The now familiar score includes stand out songs “Hello”, “Turn it Off”, “I Believe” and “Baptize Me”. The cast album became the highest charting Broadway cast album in over forty years and was even Awarded with a Grammy.

Considered by many to be the funniest musical ever written and equipped with a genuinely uplifting story, this really is one musical you will be wanting to say “Hello” to, so don't miss out and buy your Book of Mormon tickets now.

Recommended for

Although relatively tame by South Park standards, The Book of Mormon is packed full of adult content and bad language that some audience members may find shocking and is therefore recommended that only ages 15 + buy tickets.

Age Recommendations: Recommended for 17+

The Book of Mormon is guaranteed to have you howling with laughter! The set, choreography, music and actors all work seemingly effortlessly in harmony to create a show that's guaranteed to have you shedding tears of laughter by the opening number every time! KJ Hippensteel is, in my opinion, the perfect Elder Price. His interpretation of the character is hilarious and lovable despite his faults with his obsession with success and his Disney prince charming personality. I was in awe of his vocals, especially in You and Me (But Mostly Me) and I Believe. Brian Sears is a hilarious Elder Cunningham, the character I instantly fell in love with. His song, Man Up, is my favourite part of the show that has me in stitches every time. It wraps up Act One with bright lights, punk Mormons, smoke effects and Darth Vader. What more could you ask for? It's a hilarious contrast to the rest of the show we've seen so far. At first, I was disappointed that I wouldn't be seeing Asmeret Tyemane as Nabulungi, but Alexandra Ncube blew me away more than I could've ever hoped for! A beautiful and sweet Nabulungi with the voice of an angel. She even had me shed an emotional at her reprise of Hasa Diga Eebowai. However, personally, the real star of the show is the ensemble. Their typical Mormon enthusiasm is infectious and they each bring their own perks to their characters. Sometimes I don't know who to watch! For example, Two by Two and Turn It Off put a spotlight on a few of them and we really learn to love them as individuals. Personally, I'm a big Elder Poptarts fan! Also, we are introduced to the Ugandans with the side spliting Hasa Diga Eebowai, in which we meet key characters like Nabulungi and her father, Mafala. Overall, the Book of Mormon is an incredible experience that blows my mind and sends me away with a stomach ache from laughing so hard every time! Get your tickets now!

The most recent show I've seen is the Book Of Mormon on the West End in London. I thought it was an incredible show, although some parts did leave me wondering how an earth they got away with such things! It is advertised as a satirical musical, and although extremely funny, I believe it does focus on two important issues. It shows Elder Price and his goofy partner Elder Cunningham being sent to Uganda on their mission, a brand new place which neither of them have heard of. Once they arrive, there they see all sorts of horrible things which they are not accustomed to, and this leads Elder Price to doubt his faith. This shows the struggles I imagine are real for Mormons who go on missions, as they believe that they will convert people yet as shown by Elder Price, it is harder than he thought. When expressing his feelings to his fellow Mormons, they suggest that he just represses his feelings in sparkly musical number 'Turn It Off.' Another song which suggests the issues Elder Price faces whilst in Uganda is 'Spooky Mormon Hell Dream,' which I found hilarious but also shows how bad feelings of guilt can be. The second issue I feel the Book of Mormon focuses on is the hardships the Ugandan people face, such as 'poverty, war and famine' expressed in the slightly offensive song 'Hasa Diga Eebowai.' The Mormons try to spread the word of God to help the Ugandan people, and it especially helps Nabulungi who sees a glimmer of hope with what they are saying and depicts Salt Lake City as 'this perfect happy place,' as she imagines it in musical number 'Sal Tlak Siti.' I think this is performed in a great and sensitive way as it shows how many people find religion as a comfort. Towards the end of the production we see many of the Ugandans become Mormons for perhaps the wrong reasons expressed in 'Making Things Up Again,' but it still shows the unity and hope religion can bring to a society and I think this is shown greatly in the final song 'Tomorrow is a Latter Day,' where one of the lines is 'we always stick together come what may.' I would recommend the Book of Mormon as it is very funny whilst also focusing on important issues.

I saw 'The Book of Mormon' with my partner after winning SeatPlan's August competition. I had been waiting to see the show since it began in London but either didn't have the funds or lost in the ticket lottery... It was a FANTASTIC show! It was definitely worth the wait. I had already purchased the show soundtrack beforehand and really enjoyed listening to it, but I would personally not recommend this. Many of the comedic moments are included on the CD, so if you want the show to be a surprise, then don't listen to it! The full cast was performing, including KJ Hippensteel and Brian Sears as Elder Price and Elder Cunningham. They were both amazing - they had powerful voices and suited their roles well. Others have commented that Sears' performance can be annoying, but I thought he was hilarious! There was plenty of laughter from the audience (the circle was full of large groups, including a Hen party in front of us who seemed to be having a wail of a time) - all of whom were enjoying the show immensely. If you don't mind a bit of satirical humour and are game for a laugh, then you will love this show! I would like to say a MASSIVE 'Thank You!' to SeatPlan.com for giving me the chance to see the show - it was a fabulous birthday treat! I'd also like to mention Susannah who organised the tickets for our chosen date fantastically well - thank you!!

The Book of Mormon is probably one of the funniest shows I've ever seen. Is it the best? Absolutely not, but it's one of the most memorable. It's offensive and on the mark at all times, and somehow it still manages to be absolutely hilarious. Prior to the show, I was a little nervous that because it was written by the creators of South Park that it would be boring and filled with a few jokes that never land, and you know what? It was nothing like that. Okay, well maybe it was a little like South Park, but in all the good ways. Every joke landed and it was clear that the entire audience was cringing at how much they were laughing, yet they laughed even harder at the next joke. The songs are catchy, there are one liners you'll find yourself saying during the worst possible moments, and you'll never be able to say the word 'Hello' the same way again. The cast, set and costumes were fantastic and really grabbed the essence of the satirical comedy on stage. I enjoyed it so much, I've actually booked in to see it again in a few weeks.

Book of Mormon is the best show I have seen in ages. It offers everything that a good musical needs and it still surprised me. The Mormons break into song at the most hilarious points in the show and dance like there is no tomorrow. Still, the authors succeeded in making the young Mormon missionaries be sympathetic and relatable. Behind the ridiculous texts in English and African, there is a deeper message, which gives this musical its special touch. Beneath all the glitter and lights and singing the show makes you think about social issues and the meaning of belief in our society AND it makes you laugh so bad that your muscles ache when you leave the theatre. So my best tip is: Give this musical a chance, maybe it can "change your life". To the theatre itself: The staff is very friendly and offers help whenever you need it. There are several sofas where you can sit down during the interval with a drink from the bar. It's also very modern, because the theatre was refurbished recently.

Hello! So, it's a satirical musical comedy about an odd couple pair of Mormons sent to Africa on Mission work. There are numerous crass jokes, so is clearly not for the easily offended! (It's written by the creators of South Park, so was never going to be anything gentler!) Behind the course exterior there's a message of tolerance and acceptance and working together... or something like that...I don't know, I was too busy laughing at the last 'text messaging, using a typewriter' joke, to learn any life changing lessons! You've probably noted by now, but this isn't going to be the most cerebral night at the theatre ever (there are moments of cleverness, but Chekhov it is not!). It is, however, a perfectly enjoyable couple of hours spent poking fun at a number of conventions, and performed with gusto.

This show is fun, risky and hilarious. It certainly pushed the boundaries on what many people would view as acceptable but it does it such a clever way that you can laugh along with the show. I must admit in a first viewing it can be shocking and raises some controversial points but I guess most people know what they are walking into. The sets are visually stunning and the staging and choreography is clever and well put together. The actors I have seen have all been exceptional! I have found myself enjoying the show more the more times I have been just as its not quite as shocking the second or third time you see it and you start to hear or see things maybe missed in the first viewing that make you laugh or enjoy it more. A great show which is totally different to everything else in the west end! If you want a laugh and are open minded and don't take things too seriously this is the show to watch!

This musical is hilarious! I was blown away by the jokes and the dancing, but also the message behind it all when I first saw it. KJ Hippensteel is an amazing Elder Price (would like to say almost flawless) and shows so much passion on stage that you want to take his Elder Price by the hand and show him his way. His singing is very good and his acting even better. Steven Webb is by far the most talented Elder McKinley I have seen. I would even dare to say that he is currently the best singer starring in the show. He makes the character extremely lovable and honestly stands out in the crowd dancing numbers. Cody Jamison Strand has played Elder Cunningham for the past years and I can see why. This character is almost like written for him. He hits notes that I didn't know existed (I am a singer too) and has a mind blowing comedic talent.

I love this show and at this point I enjoy watching people who haven't seen it experience it for the first time even more. It's high energy all the way, it's hilarious and maybe offensive for some, but it has a huge heart and is quite poignant in some scenes. The music is simply brilliant, referencing everything from Wicked to Lion Kind and Jesus Christ Superstar. Probably one of my favourite shows currently on at the West End.
