Review: 'Book of Mormon' blends comedy, profundity, music
Iowa City Press Citizen - Friday, October 14, 2016
Few works of art find a perfect balance between laughs, profundity, vulgarity and musicality. The smash Broadway hit "The Book of Mormon" is one of the few that does.
Go forth, eastern Iowa, and baptize yourself in the ‘The Book of Mormon’
Little Village - Friday, October 14, 2016
When I first heard that Trey Parker and Matt Stone had written a full-on Broadway musical, I was intrigued — and also a bit scared. I mean, I’ve seen Baseketball, so I know for a fact that not everything they touch is gold. Perhaps it was their third collaborator, Robert Lopez, composer and lyricist of Avenue Q fame, who kept them in check and held them to the standard I believe they’ve now set for irreverent comedic musicals. If so, I hope they never let him get away, because this show was pert near freaking perfect. The tone is wickedly funny. The script is clever and tightly constructed. And the social commentary is acerbic, poignant and timeless.
THE BOOK OF MORMON REVIEW: HEAVENLY COMEDY
Daily Iowan - Thursday, October 13, 2016
The Book of Mormon begins with a doorbell, sitting there, waiting to be rung. As the lights go up, the audience is greeted with what is, to some, an all-too-familiar sight: an eager and beaming missionary of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, commonly known as LDS, standing in the doorway.
IN SEARCH OF GOD & LAUGHTER
Daily Iowan - Thursday, October 6, 2016
Book of Mormon will say “Hello” to Hancher on Oct. 11, as cast members spend a week in Iowa City to put on the show that won “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker — responsible for Book’s score, libretto, and script — the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2011. The musical follows a pair of mismatched missionaries for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as they are sent to Uganda to help spread the word of God. However, true to Stone’s and Parker’s idea, all piety goes out the window when they touch down and begin a journey that sees them encounter war-lords, love, frogs, and purple-sequined vests.
RINGING A BELL WITH 'BOOK OF MORMON
Hoopla Now - Wednesday, October 5, 2016
Hello. His name is Elder Price. Never in a million years did Ryan Bondy think the creators of television’s “South Park” and Broadway’s “Avenue Q” would know his real name. But they do, after Bondy was the standby for a leading character in “The Book of Mormon” on Broadway, then stepped into the role in three U.S. companies of the wildly popular musical. It’s set to unleash its heart and hilarity in Hancher Auditorium for eight performances from Tuesday (10/11) through Oct. 16.
