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.

Something a bit different
Lived the show... Really different from what I've been used to... Funny, well written and very entertaining

Fun
Good show

Ready to go again
Missed a little of the left hand of stage but didn’t take from overall enjoyment. Brilliant
Breda, 11 Feb 2024
A Musical, A Fun Night Out, The Book of Mormon
The show was brilliant, the acting, the storyline, the production. I realised at the intermission that I had been smiling throughout the first half of the show! The comedy can be attributed to south park humour, as you can imagine with the producers of the show being THE gents that wrote south park, if you like that (which I do) it's well worth the watch. Either way, if you like a laugh which goes hand in hand with a musical aspect, this is for you!
Callum, 08 Feb 2024
Outrageous
Great production, hilarious although be warned the story is full of swearing and blasphemous content.
Sieglinde, 04 Feb 2024

We enjoyed the show very much. It was a great production, highly recommended.

Lanny, 16 Jan 2024
FABULOUS
All we knew was it was really funny and told ourselves as long as it’s not a musical…. It was BUT not like any musical I’ve seen the song and dance was hilarious ? Loved it! Best bit Magical Fuck Frog and can’t wait to be baptised again ?

Brilliant
Really good fun - brilliantly rude and sweet at the same time.
Ben, 31 Dec 2023
the best show i have ever seen totally engaging
so energetic kept me on the edge of my seat not suitable for children, so entertaining
Jill, 22 Dec 2023
An absolute mind-melting experience
This show is fabulous. The acting, singing, dancing, set design and music is phenomenal. Some of the jokes and subject matter will stir emotions (positive and potentially negative) and will test you (as any good show should). Thank you for a brilliant night.
Helen, 16 Dec 2023
Amazing!!!!
So wrong and very funny.....I bloody loved it! I need to see this again as haven't laughed that much watching a show ever.
Carol, 03 Dec 2023
hilarious comedy pleasantly irreverent towards puritanism
very well played, a little strong language but quite necessary for the scope, I enjoyed it very much
Massimo, 03 Dec 2023
So Well Done
Full of laughs! A bit raunchy but all in good fun. The cast is so talented!
Julie, 01 Dec 2023
Colorful, occasionally dirty language, hilarious, awesome
Language and story is sometimes 18+ but nothing inappropriate. The show has high artistic value with excellent scenery. I laughed a lot.
Gabor, 01 Dec 2023
The funniest show on the West End
We laughed the whole time! Fantastic cast, fantastic songs and choreography. A really fun evening out.
Carol Ann, 01 Dec 2023
OK show but expected a better story
A typical people pleaser who are more interested in a quick laugh than a good story. It's Parker and Stone but some jokes were rather tasteless, not funny at all. Acting, scenography,music all good but again story lacking quite a bit. I saw many shows in London that I would gladly see again and again - this one was definitely not one of them. Ok to see one time and that's it.
Izabela, 27 Nov 2023
Amazing show
Wonderfully inappropriate! I love love loved it!
Zoe, 24 Nov 2023

Christina, 17 Nov 2023
Must see but you need to be open minded
not a show for the prudes or the politically correct people of the world but very funny!! Worth seeing :)
Suzanna, 16 Nov 2023
Very entertaining
Wonderful show and very hilarious. I enjoyed it especially the music
Christine, 07 Nov 2023
Magnificently irreverent
A rib- achingly funny show.
Alex, 06 Nov 2023
Excellent laugh out loud funny
Brilliant from start to finish. Funny enough to make us laugh out loud. Amazing acting, singing and dancing. The best thing we’ve seen for ages. But only suitable for adults!
Judy, 02 Nov 2023
Do yourself a favour and go.
Great show, brilliant performance by all involved. Music and humour masking the seriousness of poverty and human rights abuses facing people in Africa. Takes the piss out of religions of all types.
Shayne, 21 Oct 2023
Best thing I've seen in forever
Funny, so so funny, I laughed out loud and enjoyed every second of it.
Gabriella, 18 Oct 2023
Overwhelmingly energetic, funny and original.
As a Dutch visitor I can recommend the show to any Dutchman with a reasonable command of the English language. And should one miss a word the energy, the lighting, the decor all more than makes up for that.
Hans, 18 Oct 2023
A must see.
Absolutely wonderful show. Fantastic singing and acting. Lots of laughs. Didn't expect it to be that good.
Lynley, 18 Oct 2023
A definite must see
From the moment the curtain came up and the first actor said Hello I knew this was going to be you are one of these people who are offended by the piss take of any religion, then this is not for you. But for me & it seemed the rest of the audience it was hilarious. The acting was outstanding, the songs were really good & catchy but the story was just so clever. Anyone that has ever had a Mormon on their front door step will understand. I definitely go to this again. Just a slight whinge at the theatre, not the show itself, there are only 5 ladies toilets for the whole of the theatre. Not ideal at all, especially at the interval when everyone wants to go. It was ridiculous. Also, the bar does not take cash anymore, just to let you know. Great show, really enjoyed it.
Rachel, 16 Oct 2023
Absolutely Hilarious
Good story line and very funny. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Even my partner who is not a theatre goer, said he liked it.
Sarah Wadzanai, 16 Oct 2023
Colourful fun and racy
Amazing show, fabulous constumes and a really good watch if you have an open mind
Amanda, 14 Oct 2023
Great theatre if a bit irreverent
Great energy, excellent story line. Do not take it too seriously, sit back and enjoy.
Lloyd, 13 Oct 2023
Genius
Insanely funny and recognisably from the creators of South Park
Matt, 11 Oct 2023
Colourful but explicit
I enjoyed this show but was somewhat surprised by some of the content. While I was not bothered I hope the show comes with warnings that it is not a family show (sex with babies, female circumcision, anal sex).
Nanette, 06 Oct 2023
Was not expecting something like this
I was aware about the theme of the play but lord, I was not prepare for what I witness. Very very funny and sassy, had an amazing time. Thank you for all the cast and the team I really enjoy the play.
Gonzalo, 02 Oct 2023
So much fun
The show was fun and was so much better than I expected. Would recommend to anyone.
Mary, 25 Sep 2023
Amazing
Been back several times over the years. So funny. Not for little kids or the super religious but great for anyone who enjoys South Park humor.
Kimberly, 22 Sep 2023
A great night out
Not for the young or prudish
Oliver, 15 Sep 2023
Truthful hilarity, no PC here!
Religion is hammered so don't take it too seriously. It's more about having fun with a few facts. Will get you talking about it for a few days afterwards. Listen hard to the lyrics to get the most out of the gags. Enjoy?
Diana, 05 Sep 2023
Joyous, happy show
This show started with a bang then continued the humour, music and dancing till the end. Still smiling the day after. All cast me,hers exception and amazing. Why did I not see this production sooner?
Noreen, 31 Aug 2023
Riotously funny
Extremely funny show. Loved every scene and song choice.
Emike, 26 Aug 2023
Entertainment at its Best
Suspend any pc beliefs you have for 2 hours and have the time of your life What could possibly beat this, The I Pad,of Scientology, maybe !
Phil, 25 Aug 2023
Bold
The Book of Mormon was everything I hoped it would be and more. The storyline was hysterical, the cast was superb, the composition always kept you entertained and boundaries were pushed to provoke thought. The venue was ideal regards location, size and comfort. We arrived 20minutes before the start, this appeared to work well. We pre-ordered drinks and they were waiting for us. The evening was well organised and well managed. Exiting was easy and all in all it was a highly enjoyable evening that I would heartily recommend. 5 stars *****
Garry, 24 Aug 2023
Great show but not for the easily offended
This is a show for adults who are not easily offended. Religon, belief, customs and the americanisation of religon are dealt with irreverantly. Do not watch it with your teenage children, you and they will blush!
Kevin, 20 Aug 2023
Absolutely fabulous
So so funny. Language was shocking but was in a funny manner. I’ve seen the show 5 times, I love it :-)
sian, 20 Aug 2023
All types of wrong lol
This is such a funny show I am from Australia and saw it Melbourne and had to see it again
Philomena, 11 Aug 2023
Amazing show
Loved it, surprising, hilarious and every thing you want from an evening out. Not for families,unless very open-minded.
Hilary, 09 Aug 2023
Amazing show
Watched when it first showed years ago and now twice in 3 months. My teenage boys really enjoyed it. 15 and 16.
James, 04 Aug 2023
Riotous
This play was vulgar, surprising and we absolutely laughed our heads off. Can’t believe the Mormon church hasn’t had a fit over it. Just hysterical and the entire cast was just fantastic!
Bonnie, 31 Jul 2023
Good humor
Very entertaining
Barbara, 30 Jul 2023
Designed to shock you and make you laugh all at the same time!
At the beginning this is one of those shows that makes you laugh out loud at exactly the same time as you realise that what was said is SO bad that you know you really shouldnt be laughing at all!! And then also realise that everyone else is laughing too and also glancing around nervously, so its ok!! Gosh what a show - so worth the effort to get up to London to see it. VERY excrutiatingly funny - no-one is safe from ridicule...NO-ONE! Brilliant script from the SouthPark writers
Stuart, 21 Jul 2023
AWSOME
Great show. Great performance. So much fun! Look forward to returning.
Amanda, 17 Jul 2023
Fantastic
Genius satire, not afraid to touch sensitive aspects of life, loved every aspect of it.
Juan Pablo, 08 Jul 2023
Offensive, irreverent and hilarious!
Brilliant show! Superb staging and choreography. Amazingly talented cast. Highly recommended but not for those who take offence easily!
Sue, 27 Jun 2023
AS except and indicated well the type of show.
The comedy was good but the language used and of the discerption were not required.
Andrew Charles John, 25 Jun 2023
Laughed so much!
Excellent script, acting and music! I don’t reminder the last time I laughed so hard at a musical. Excellent! Will be going again.
Marcela, 24 Jun 2023
A Fabulously spectacular must see
Cheeky,funny,outrageous and everything you expect from the South park makers. No subject is off limit. Everyone will see the humour, except a mormon.
Dyane, 23 Jun 2023
Fantasy
Haven’t laughed so much in a long time. Great actors and singers. Gave me a huge boost. Thank you to all for a wonderful afternoon. Leanne Robinson has an incredible voice. Would love to see her in more shows.
Deborah, 17 Jun 2023
Great show!
This was a great and funny show. It's so good that you can still go and see shows that are NOT politically correct. It's probably not for you if you are easily offended - or a Mormon. The performance was only marred by a technical difficulty during the second part which led to an unexpected 5 minute interval while things were put right.
Russell, 15 Jun 2023
Second time and still loving it
So funny & everyone is so good!
Cristina, 14 Jun 2023
Outstanding
Lead singer/actor terrific. Really carried the show. Hilariously irreverent and entertaining with fast paced storyline.

Mark, 01 Jun 2023
Hilarious, exciting and unexpected
Naughty language so important to go with an open mind. So many funny bits in it. If you don't tolerate swearing or are strongly religious it's not for you
Sally, 27 May 2023
A blast!
Excellent entertainment
Richard, 24 May 2023
Funny, but also poignant. Loved the character of Alfred, good comes from bad. Uganda setting and characters colourful and acurate?
Have put review in the box above! Title - A must see with a heart warming message.
Sandra, 13 May 2023
A must see
Cannot praise this show enough. From start to finish excellent in every aspect. I can’t remember the last time I laughed so much. We are already talking about going again.
Gary, 13 May 2023
Your face will burst from laughter and smiles!! A MUST SEE!
Beyond words. This show will lift your spirits and refresh your soul. A truly feel good, hilarious and well articulated performance. Very intelligently done.
Shanon, 08 May 2023
Excellent show and very funny
Loved it, I did not expect to be laughing all the way through. I would suggest that those who do not like blasphemous language, crude language and find swear words as unacceptable, should avoid it, as it may not be to their taste.
Atul, 04 May 2023
If you love South Park, you will love this
Just really funny and the songs were great, we booked last minute and thought maybe our seats wouldn't be great but they were in a good spot and because the theatre is small would book those seats again
Michelle, 03 May 2023
Hilarious!
A must-see musical but make sure you go with someone who isn’t easily offended!
Kiersten, 30 Apr 2023
Fantastic, must see, highly entertaining
Such a good day’s entertainment. Very funny and great music, would highly recommend.
Aine, 29 Apr 2023

Everything spectacular!
richard, 25 Apr 2023
Unexpectedly colourful and hugely funny and entertaining
Maybe advised some language not suitable for children
Judith, 20 Apr 2023
Irreverent, ridiculous, hilarious
Life of Brian treatment for the Mormons, with touching human stories, deliberate ham acting that sent off stereotypes - sometimes a little close to the bone.
George, 20 Apr 2023
Hilarious, amazing show
Amazing show, ridiculously funny, fast paced …A great time and must-see theater for fans of slightly crass humor
Patrik, 19 Apr 2023
Brilliant, funny
I love this show so much, but it is very rude so follow the guidelines and don’t bring kids! Joyous, hilarious, as soon as it’s over you want to see it again.
Josephine, 14 Apr 2023
Fabulous
Show was brilliant, limited access to ladies toilets during interval.
Chris, 11 Apr 2023
My visit.
Veey funny musical, can get over camp at time but I guess thats the point.
Darrel, 04 Apr 2023
A must see for the open minded
Fantastic show all actors full of energy great performance not for the easily offended regards religion
Elaine, 01 Apr 2023
Raucous naughty fun !
An amazing, lively show with foot tapping music and hysterical lyrics. Not for the easily offended ! This was my 2nd visit and I will happily see it again ?
Sara, 24 Mar 2023
Book of Mormon
Wasn’t sure of what to expect as not at all religious. But found the show to have good songs. Really funny and a send up on Religious themes. But not too heavy. Just really funny and great fun. But don’t go if you take life seriously and are easily offended.
Andrew, 24 Mar 2023
Exceptional Time
Went to the show without expectations but knowing it was a 5-star show. I was not expecting what happened. The costumes, the colors, the scenarios, and the songs, were simply amazing. It was amazing! I was there for 2h but the time passed really quickly. I really enjoyed it and I gave some big laughs.
Catarina, 23 Mar 2023
Funny, entertaining a must see!!!!!
Love every bit of the show! Saw it in New York before but the London version was the best!!!!!!!
Veronika, 21 Mar 2023
Unexpected
Did not know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. The lead roles were superb and the musicality brilliant. Would recommend to an adult audience
M, 21 Mar 2023
Funnies show that I’ve seen in years
If you’re easily offended, don’t go. If you’re open to some incredibly funny scenes, this is your show.
David, 18 Mar 2023
Seen it 4 times and still laugh my ass off
Love this so much. Although woke ideologies touched this show as well, they don’t day “africans” anymore, they say “villagers”, Arnold doesn’t say “she’s so dark” anymore, he says “she’s so hot”. I think it loses a bit of its original style. Although now it transformed quite a while from how it was 6-7 years ago. They take more pauses to let awkward moments sit in. But all in all, still love it! Seats sere amazing.
Georgian, 16 Mar 2023
Absolutely Hilarious
Hilarious, fabulous acting and singing and dancing. Over 18s probably though !
Jill, 11 Mar 2023
Why did I take so long to see it.
Top 3 best shows I have ever seen, I'd actually say more like top 2, hard to pass up Les Miserables. Went with my son, two totally different sense of humours but both laughed out loud the whole way through. They should be very proud of their work. Will recommend it for years to come.
Haydn, 09 Mar 2023
A riot of irreverent fun, high impact dancing and great singing from the whole cast
Probably not for most regular churchgoers
Dorothy, 06 Mar 2023
