Crafted by the makers of South Park, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, as well as the record-breaking Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony holder, Robert Lopez, the musical score is renowned for garnering its very own Tony Award.
In reply to appeals from cast members to reexamine the portrayal of black characters in light of worries about racial equality, a handful of lyrics and elements of the plot were marginally altered back in 2021. Nonetheless, the themes of friendship, faith, and hope, which surpass all faiths, stay unchanged across the performance.
In their evaluation, The New York Daily News describes how The Book of Mormon is a performance where you often find yourself laughing one minute and then uncover your mouth agape the subsequent, finally tearing up and, finally, rooting for the main singers. Writers Stone and Parker are infamous for their "take-no-prisoners, nothing-is-sacred method to comedy."
Additionally, Lopez demonstrates a knack for thumbing his nose at modern norms. As all three share credit for the script, songs, and words, this production can be labeled as "foolish, heartfelt, and exceptionally crude, while the score continually lively and intelligent keeps the scenes in this Book moving smoothly.”
