Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) December 03, 2013
The Book of Mormon doesn’t mess around. It’s shocking and mocking in its explicit and irreverent satire on organized religion.
Written by the creators of South Park, this bawdy, naughty musical opened at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre on Broadway just over two years ago, and ticket sales have stayed blessed ever since.
Audiences and critics agree that it is scandalous, sacrilegious, scathing, potty-mouthed and highly disrespectful. They also agree that the play is sweet, soulful and ultimately satisfying as well.
Perhaps that’s why theatre-goers continue to flock to this controversial yet comforting production, and why it consistently ranks at the top of ticket sales across the nation.
In fact, the nine-time Tony Award-winner is so popular, it now has four productions playing simultaneously around the world: the original musical at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York; U.S. touring casts at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco and the Au-Rene Theatre in Ft. Lauderdale; and still another company at the Prince of Wales Theatre in London, England.
The Ft. Lauderdale cast closes on December 22 and moves to the Belk Theatre at the Bluementhal Performing Arts Center in Charlotte, North Carolina from December 26 through January 5, 2014.
“The Book of Mormon is definitely not appropriate for younger children, especially those in their pre-teens,” said Felina Martinez at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com. “But adults all over the world are flocking to see the musical.”
“That’s why we’re proud to be able to offer theatre-goers the most comprehensive and continuously updated selection of tickets available online, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” said Martinez.

From the creators of South Park and Avenue Q, Coloradoans Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the Book of Mormon continues to receive an almost perfect 4.9 rating from audiences on Broadway, while critics give it a 4.7 out of five stars. (Source: entertainment-link.com)
The musical itself tells the tale of two mismatched missionaries sent to deepest, darkest Africa to spread the good word. What happens to these mismatched missionaries in poor, starving, AIDS-plagued Africa is... well, R-rated.
To some reviewers, the musical’s content is revolutionary and classic, hilarious and humane, funny and obscene. Other critics have called it blasphemous, scurrilous and more foul-mouthed than David Mamet on a blue streak – yet with a heart and soul as pure and pristine as a Rodgers and Hammerstein or Disney show.
Just how offensive is it? Those who have seen South Park won't need any warnings, but the producers have issued a parental advisory due to explicit language. Yet, despite its adult themes and coarse content, critics call it “surprisingly sweet”, while Vogue magazine writes that the show "starts out as a potty-mouthed buddy comedy" before "winding up as a kind of parable," and concludes that the musical's "dirty little secret is its big heart."
The musical played to over 100 percent capacity at the 1,066-seat Eugene O’Neill Theatre again last week, which was once again the highest percentage for the week on Broadway, per official box office data provided by entertainment-link.com. The London production continues to be extended by popular demand.
The North American traveling productions have already played to full houses in Minneapolis, St. Louis, Rochester, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Boston, Chicago, Washington D.C., Dallas, Omaha, Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and New Orleans,
