The Book of Mormon originally opened at O’Neill Theatre in New York City on March 24, 2011. "The Book of Mormon” is a unique theatre production directed by two brilliant and capable directors named Parker and Casey Nicholaw who took every aspect of the Broadway production very seriously. From the selection of cast to the composition of the music, every small detail ended up being worked on until it was right. The book of Mormon describes the story of two missionaries who stumble upon an Ugandan village. The finest quality of the musical is the unusual way in which three distinct topics, Religion, AIDs and The Lion King have been brought together. The mockery of these topics enables the musical to offer plenty of laughter to spectators. The directors wanted “The Book of Mormon” to put forward some cynical and at the same time some hopeful material that could have a long lasting impact on the audience.
“The Book of Mormon,” like other Broadway musicals, has attracted a large amount of media attention and coverage. Nonetheless, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints issued this statement: “The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but The Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people’s lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ.”
One critic, Charles McNulty, has given varied remarks about the musical. According to him, the boldness and audacity that this musical portrays can only be expected from the maker of “South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut.” Despite the newness of the musicals' compositions and storyline, "The Book of Mormon" sometimes gives a feel of old-fashion and familiar comedy that you have been used to since your childhood. Several newspapers and magazines have honored the production by describing in words like “pleasure-giving” and “humorous.” Ben Brantley who is a highly respected theatre reviewer had these words about the production, “And for combining polish, enthusiasm and individuality, the ensemble is the best in a musical since Susan Stroman’s team for “The Producers.””
“The Book of Mormon” is presented in more of a classical mode. The unique aspect of this play is that it matches the fantasies of The Lion King, and adds idealization of religion and spiteful reality. Though several people rose their eyebrows over the musical’s attempt to scoff at religion, numerous patrons have praised the true boldness featured throughout the Broadway show. The enjoyable music was written by several talented names including Parker, Stone, and Scatological. According to Parker when you try to present the attitudes of society, it becomes very difficult to convince religious devotees. They leave no stone unturned to give you reasons of warlord’s threatening warning to the women of the village.
The sets and complete stage interior turned out to be phenomenal after long hours of exertion and hard work. This musical is fun to watch, despite all the controversies that it has given birth to. The appearance of actors and actresses is also stunning as they seem to be well trained for their role in this musical. The costumes have been designed to match the bold theme of the musical and they also enhance the interest of the audience in the story of the show.
