Well after seeing the play Book of Mormon, in this case, no nothing is. It may not be for everyone and I could see how some might be offended, an average of fifty people walk out of a performance, but really Book of Mormon is from the creators of South Park. You have to know what you are walking into; surely one is not expecting a sequel to the Sound of Music. This play is not one for the kiddies.
Book of Mormon
In any case, be prepared to laugh until it hurts, and at other times to shake your head in in utter amazement, at what you are hearing and seeing. But remember, Book of Mormon is live theatre and weren’t you fortunate to get one of the hottest ticket on Broadway. If you think you are going to be offended – you probably will be. So my suggestion would be to not to go and let someone who will appreciate it – to have chance to nab one of those tickets. For me, it was a night of laughing until it hurts and shaking my head in utter amazement, at what the creators got away with.
Kristen and I got back from the Big Apple in early March – after beating those mean streets. The purpose of our visit was to make travel agents in NY aware of the Hampton Inn & Suites Chicago/Downtown, for business and leisure travel. Twenty – one appointments and touching 500+ agents in a week, we returned back to our home and our home away from home, Chicago and the Hampton Inn and Suites Chicago/Downtown.
Now you know what kept us busy during the day – but the evenings were ours for the asking. What comes to mind when some people think NYC – if you resemble me – the theatre would be number one. And pray tell (no pun intended) what did I see “The Book of Mormons”.
The title of my “Blog” describes the tone of the play in a nutshell. If you cannot take a joke – for no matter who you are you are going to get slammed. No one is left unscathed. It is written by the creators of South Park – come on – would you expect anything less – and no TV censors.
Performances in Chicago start in December of this year and I urge you to get your tickets now- because the run will sell out quickly. Just remember “Nothing’s Sacred”, and do bring something to wipe away those tears of laughter. This review does come with a warning – not for the easily offended.
