Denver, CO (PRWEB) February 26, 2013
The Book of Mormon is bawdy and blasphemous. It is controversial, but ultimately comforting. But most of all, it is definitely not appropriate for anyone under age.
Perhaps that’s why the faithful continue to flock to this sweet yet scandalous play. And why it continues to break Broadway attendance records and bless box office receipts since it first opened in February of 2011.
The nine-time Tony Award winner currently has three productions performing concurrently at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre in New York, the Bank of America Theatre in Chicago, and the Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis.
While the New York and Chicago productions continue, the production currently in St. Louis wraps on March 3, 2013. The cast then performs at the Rochester Auditorium Theatre in Rochester, New York from March 5 -10, the Fisher Theatre in Detroit from March 12 – 24, and the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania from March 26 – April 7, 2013.
After performances in Boston, the production begins an extended run at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Canada.
“While The Book of Mormon is not appropriate for younger children, especially those in their pre-teens, adult audiences appear to appreciate the show’s explicit and irreverent content,” said Felina Martinez at online ticket marketplace BuyAnySeat.com. “We continue to see The Book of Mormon tickets at the top of our Most Popular Theatre Tickets list.”
“Performances shifted from Minneapolis to open in St. Louis on February 19, 2013. Upcoming runs in Rochester, Detroit, Pittsburgh, Boston and Toronto are booked, while productions in New York and Chicago will continue to perform at their current venues,” said Martinez.
“We’re proud to be able to offer fans a complete selection of tickets to all three productions, with a worry-free guarantee to protect their purchase,” said Martinez.
“To access the continuously updated listing of cheap Book of Mormon tickets we now have available, customers can go to BuyAnySeat.com and search for Book of Mormon – then select their tickets,” 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 Broadway audiences, 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. Those who have seen "South Park" probably won't need any warnings, but the producers have issued a parental advisory due to `explicit language’. What happens to these asymmetric missionaries in poor, hungry, AIDS-plagued Africa is... well, R-rated.
To some reviewers, the musical’s content is both 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? Despite its adult theme and coarse content, Entertainment Weekly and the Salt Lake Tribute 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."
