We enjoyed the performance for the most part. The singing and dancing were wonderful. But the whole point of the musical was to understand the words. Sitting in the Grand Tier 2, on Oct 16th, the music was way too loud! Therefore we could not understand the words because the music was too loud! And it wasn't just us. I asked the people around us if they didn't think the music was too loud to understand the words and they agreed.

LOVED THE SHOW, BUT IT WAS TOO LOUD
i gave the show 5 stars because it is clever and funny, but we missed some of the lyrics because the speakers were on TOO LOUD. Not the actors fault, more of a technical problem.

HILARIOUS AND GREAT PRODUCTION
The cast is amazing, the whole production perfect, and the musical itself is hilarious! My family and I really enjoyed the show and highly recommend it. Be prepared to be offended if you can't laugh at yourself and organized religion. It is a satire and the writers are the South Park creators!

If you can still get tickets for BOM you must go see this show! The music is outstanding - the band is amazing!! I had a view of the orchestra pit and loved watching these talented musicians at work. The cast was wonderful - they really brought the hilariously irreverent Parker/Stone/Lopez book and lyrics to life beautifully. We had the stand-in for Elder Cunningham (Cody Jamison Strand) and he was superb! His adorable innocent awkwardness captured the character perfectly. Mark Evans as Elder Price and Grey Henson as Elder McKinley were both outstanding in their roles as were all of the Mormon boys. Samantha Marie Ware as Nabalungi/Neosporin/Necrophilia etc (lol) and all her tribe mates were also wonderful - such beautiful harmonies they produced! I could go on and on raving about this comedic musical masterpiece .... But words fail ... Go see this show! If you missed the Toronto show then go to the next city of the tour and see it there!!!

Without a doubt, BoM is the best show to come out of the musical theater world in years. The story is uplifting, the characters are both lovable and relatable, and every song perfectly caters to the moment in the show. The scenarios in the show are hysterically realistic, and the story's resolution is nothing short of heartwarming. Overall, BoM displays musical theater in its finest light and breathes a breath of fresh air into the lungs of Broadway/musical theater, which has become stale and commercialized over the years. In addition, BoM is written by the comedic geniuses Stone, Parker, and Lopez. I am dumbfounded by theatergoers who criticize the show's vulgarity, and in return go about telling others how it is a "bad" show. This could not be further from the truth. Perhaps these patrons should use some common sense and research a show before seeing it, rather than seeing it, being surprised by it, and then lying to others about its quality because they had their feelings hurt.

FUNNIEST PERFORMANCE I'VE EVER SEEN
This is the funniest show I've ever seen in my entire life (including musicals, plays, and even film.) Not only is it hilarious, but the music and dancing is just as wonderful as a traditional musical's singing and dancing would be. It’s such a well-written show that truly understands adult humor, keeping the audience laughing constantly. I wouldn’t go as far to call it crude, but it is meant for an older audience (coming from a seventeen year-old girl.) Even though I’ve seen other masterpieces such as Phantom of the Opera, Lion King, and Sweeney Todd, The Book of Mormon is my new favorite musical. It’s incredible and definitely worth your time and money.

Mormon is not for the faint hearted, once you accept the foul-mouthed irreverence and vulgarity you can apprreciate the creativity, terrific dance numbers, witty score, imaginative sets and choreography that make Book Of Mormon THE musical to see this year.
