The Book of Mormon - From the creators of South Park
An unstoppable hit. Damnably clever and sharp.
It’s the hit of the year. Surprising, beguiling absurdity, and daring at every level.
The most talked about show in London. A blast of often goofy, sometimes glorious musical comic delight. This show is the real deal.
I absolutely loved it. Seriously inspired and absolutely uproarious.
The Book of Mormon is viciously funny. Spirited and refreshing; joyous and even cuddly. Its defining feature is a filthy irreverence – an infatuation with making fun of everything, including itself.

The Book of Mormon

You like your musical comedy edgy. You love anything outrageous. And you're a sucker for satire. This is no show for kids. It's grown up stuff. And it's bang-on hilarious. It pokes marvellous fun at organised religion, the economy, consumerism. You name it, it comes in for a highly satisfying pasting. It even takes the mickey out of the musical theatre genre itself. Now that's what we call brave!

Then again Robert Lopez is no stranger to controversy. He co-wrote the score and lyrics of the scandalous 2003 puppet musical Avenue Q, a piece that genuinely shocked some audiences and outraged the popular press.

Dreamed up by the talented Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone, the creators of the smash hit cartoon TV series South Park, the musical reveals the story of two young Mormon missionaries dispatched to a small town in Uganda to spread the word of their church and its Latter Day Saints. The innocent pair are truly shocked at the cultural differences between home and Africa and things get very scary indeed when a powerful War Lord threatens violence. The missionaries do their best to share their scriptures with the locals, but famine, poverty and AIDS take precedence and the pair end up battling their own beliefs in an attempt to drive change.

Creative, funny, touching, surprising!
I absolutely liked the unexpected turns in it! So funny and touching. Very well acted! Very happy I saw this musical!

Fantastically funny but don’t go if you’re easily offended 😂
Lots of people had recommended the show to us. It’s so good I’m booking to go back again. The acting and music was brilliant. It’s sweary but in context when you realise (sadly) the truth behind it. The added bonus is that it’s a great theatre as well.
Rach, 10 Aug 2022
Hilarious from start to finish
I started laughing 10 seconds in and don’t think I stopped for 2 hours, absolutely brilliant.
samuel, 08 Aug 2022
Must see
Wonderfully musical, adult humour, tongue in cheek and innuendo. A hilariously risqué look at life as a Mormon elder. Wonderful performances by the entire cast.
Stephanie, 07 Aug 2022
South Park fans rejoice
If you're a fan of South Park then this will be right up your street. If you're easily offended then I would avoid as it's quite crude but so so funny. The singing and dancing is spot on, all the cast making it a joy to watch
samantha, 05 Aug 2022
Wonderful
Thomas, 01 Aug 2022
A MUSICAL LIKE NO OTHER!
AN AMAZING SHOW, THE CAST ARE SO TALENTED, WE WERE LAUGHING ALL THE WAY THROUGH. NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED LAUNGUAGE/SUBJECT WISE, WE KNEW WHAT WE WERE IN FOR AND ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE. WE WOULD DEFINITLEY GO AND SEE IT AGAIN AND RECOMMEND IT TO ANYONE OVER 18
Jilly, 31 Jul 2022
Great show
I really like it. If you are a person who is easily offended just choose different musical. This one is for people who like really dark humour. Cast is amazing. Singing and dancing was so good.
Anna, 31 Jul 2022
Funniest Show I’ve Seen
John, 24 Jul 2022
Great show
We enjoyed The Book of Mormon at Prince of Wales Theatre immensely. Very good and comfortable seats, great sound and nice drinks. We can definitely recommend both the show and the theatre.
Vibeke, 22 Jul 2022
It is funny
The actors did a good job but I don’t think mocking Allah or Jesus is funny . They made fun of Christianity and all religions
Mona, 19 Jul 2022
If you love Southpark, you will love this!
Paul, 18 Jul 2022
Tremendous script, very original and humor suitable for South park creators
Shame they had a technical issue in the start of the 2nd act. Other than that, 10/10
Yoav, 17 Jul 2022
Must see
Bernadette, 17 Jul 2022
Awesometacular
You will enjoy it if you like satire with a lot of pop culture references and dark humor. It was everything I expected from creators of South Park.
Nika, 16 Jul 2022
Disrespectful show to many extents but good artistic performance
Overall good actors and good music but the show loses its funny side by overusing too many rude and sexual language at times. The spectator obviously expects the show to make fun of clichés on Mormons, religion and the Africans but it gets disrespectful at times. That's the shame. It could have stayed funny without hurting other people's beliefs and culture.
Sarah, 15 Jul 2022
Witty, sharp, funny, controvertial
Come open minded and allow a good laugh without getting offended. It is funny and smart but one needs to be open to the non politically correctness.
Adva, 15 Jul 2022
Enjoyable show
Funny & great music in this show. Some swearing & obscene language, maybe unnecessary.
Maya, 15 Jul 2022
Must see!
Absolutely everything about this show was outstanding, from the lighting, the music, the sets to the actors. You’re fave will hurt from laughing so hard. Do yourself a favour and book your tickets now!

A must see
The most brilliant show. I haven’t laughed so much for ages. What a wonderful way to spend
Richard, 06 Jul 2022
Great show!
Outrageously entertaining! Beautiful performances!
Candace, 06 Jul 2022
Energetic, comical musical with a punchy message.
Enjoyable and surprising west end show which will shock conservative theatre goers.
Steve, 05 Jul 2022
A definite must see
Keeps your attention from start to finish.
Raymond, 04 Jul 2022
Hilarious!
It’s the best show in town, very rude, very very funny and brilliant. The cast are excellent and give their all. My only criticism is I wish firstly people wouldn’t turn up late and secondly that the theatre wouldn’t let lategoers in, disturbing everyone else.

Laugh In London
Highly recommend this spoof! Funny, entertaining, and thought provoking too. Great cast!
David, 28 Jun 2022
Funny as hell! - and the music is also good.
Jakub, 25 Jun 2022
Fantastic
Jackie, 22 Jun 2022
Refreshingly funny
Very much for adults and those with a broad sense of humour but with humour that if your easily offended you will be which, makes it even funnier
Derek, 21 Jun 2022
Hilarious! Go with an open mind
Second time seeing it and laughed just as much. Go in knowing it’s humour is on the dark side and you’ll love it!!
Monique, 21 Jun 2022
Caution
My friend and I (having not read any reviews or anything about the show) were really shocked at the language and especially the content which at times was offensive and unnecessary, and we are by no means prudes. Not the sort of show to see with children or the vicar!!! That said the music, dancing, singing, acting and costumes were all fabulous.
Sandra, 18 Jun 2022
unexpected funny and amazing
Dave, 18 Jun 2022
Fantastic
Shonna, 18 Jun 2022
Kind of rude, but so brilliant you didn't care!
A bit on the edge for my 13 year old, though she assured me she heard much worse at school (!). But so funny and such a hilarious sending up of crazy evangelical Mormons. Energising to watch and the cast were really top notch - and it was a matinee. They gave it their heart and soul. I would love to go again, and you can't say much more than that.
Virginia, 17 Jun 2022
Fab night out
Loved it very funny If easily offended,I'm not, then simply don't go
Vera, 16 Jun 2022
Wonderfully irreverent and fun
Chris, 15 Jun 2022
Absolutely incredible!
Jenna, 13 Jun 2022
So Funny!
Robyn, 13 Jun 2022
Funny, rude, thought provoking.
I enjoyed the comedy elements very much. I laughed a lot. It is really a show for adults that are not easily offended. I could have imagined that it would have been too rude for some of my friends. The overall story was very thought provoking. I also learned quite a bit about the history of the Mormon religion.
Tracy, 12 Jun 2022
Great funny show, good laugh and lots of unexpected surprises!
Ergin, 12 Jun 2022
Worth seeing
The last musical I saw was La La Land. This was 1000 times better!
Pamela, 11 Jun 2022
Had to leave, sorry!
Thanks for an amazing 1/2 a show 🙈 We had to leave as my mum was taken ill during the show due to the heat. Thank you so much Sean and the other staff for taking such good care of us, making an extremely embarrassing situation as comfortable to get through as possible. Genuinely really appreciated, you were great 🙏🏼 Hopefully we can get back and finish the show sometime soon
Oliver, 10 Jun 2022
Hasa Diga Eebowai!
Superb night out, hilarious, poignant, top quality songs, acting and wanna go see again right now! Lots of swearing so perhaps not suitable for minors... All the staff in the theatre were awesome too. Very friendly and helpful.
Paul, 09 Jun 2022
Absolutely amazing!
Liron, 09 Jun 2022
Fair
Over all a good night out
Patrick, 09 Jun 2022
Not everyone’s cup of tea
Be prepared for a lot of swearing and unsavoury content not for those easily shocked!
Leigh, 30 May 2022
Finally got to see Book of Mormon after Edinburgh Covid cancellation two years running
This is a brilliant production with excellent cast. It is not for the narrow minded or anyone who objects to swearing but it is lots of fun, the music is good and it hold the attention from start to finish.
Ruth, 30 May 2022
Not for the faint hearted
Amusing but ridiculous light hearted show but be warned about the language.
Nick, 29 May 2022
Hilarious but beware if easily offended
I absolutely lived Book of Mormon, this is the second time I have seen it but this time with my teenage daughters. Laughed till I cried definitely funnier second time! Would go back and see it again right now! Complete mickey take of mormonism and how it came to be! Lobed it and the cast were brilliant. Never missed a cue, expressions, voice everything perfect! Well done and thank you!
cheryl, 28 May 2022

The Book of Mormen
Just finished watching the show and I can honestly say it was brilliant. Not a show for the fainthearted but very funny. The acting was amazing

FRESH AIR IN THIS CENSORED, POLITICALLY CORRECT WORLD OF OURS
Helena, 20 May 2022
Good, some adult themes
Technical problem inbthe second half did spoil it a little
Gary, 20 May 2022
Woeful racial stereotyping with sprinkles of racism
There was so much more they've could've done to point out how stupid the LDS is. But they used a lot of the show to take a pop at African, making them out to be backwards and still living in huts. At one point a lead character called a black girl 'Nutella'. I just found it a bit racist.
Simon, 20 May 2022
Feel good musical
Left the theatre feeling fantastic.
maria, 20 May 2022

Dean, 13 May 2022
Still great!
We saw this show, also at Prince of Wales theater, 5-6 years ago. We were so happy to see several of the same actors , same awesome music but with a more polished updated look! Made seeing it again a real joy!!
Susan, 13 May 2022
Fantastic Show! Lots of fun
Very funny, I could not stop laughing but also a bit offensive. Make sure you can take it. Great acting. Very talented young people! Super voices. Clever jokes. CONGRATULATIONS to all the team!
Gokce, 11 May 2022
Really enjoyed the show, but don’t go if you are easily offended about sex, race or religion.
Angela, 10 May 2022
Hilarious!
Hilarious show and it was great to see how packed the theatre was for a Saturday matinee. Not for the sensitive or easily offended but brilliant show.
Linda, 08 May 2022

Gitty, 05 May 2022
Amazing
absolutely fantastic !! A must see !! Money well spent !!
Annabel, 03 May 2022
Mixed
While the dancing was great, themes outrageous and very funny in parts, there was too much “camping it up”, cheap laughs sought by the annoying male sidekick, and overacting.
Linda, 03 May 2022
Great Show, big laughs!
Lisa, 30 Apr 2022
Very irreverent enjoyable had a good time
Niall, 29 Apr 2022
Fantastic and Hilarious !!
This show was fantastic and funnier than I could have ever expected. The acting was sensational, music incredible, and the comedic timing perfect. My husband enjoyed it a lot and he generally doesn’t like musicals!
Jennifer, 25 Apr 2022
Vibrant and vulgar - you will love it!
Chin Fong, 25 Apr 2022
Second time seeing it was even better!
I was thrilled to see this fantastic show again, and found it even better the second time! Hilarious, filthy, absurd, clever, raunchy, fun. SEE IT!
Sophie, 23 Apr 2022

Hilarious and uplifting
What an hilarious and uplifting show! From the start to the finish we laughed. So cleverly written and superbly acted. Can’t praise Elder Cunningham enough- he was beyond fantastic. The highlight for me was him singing ‘Man up’ Seen this show twice and could continue to see it more. Congrats to all concerned.
Jill, 01 Apr 2022
