Recently, I have been moving to Denver, however I did manage to pay a visit to New York City. With a love for South Park, I decided to see a Broadway musical, and I (Of course) wanted to see Trey and Matt's musical "The Book Of Mormon".
Before I start let me say if you have a chance to see it, I recommend seeing the New York City version, but if it is on tour in your town, go see it you will not regret it. So I'd give this musical a 10 out of 10 and heavily recommend it and also if you do wish to see it, I recommend you do not read further as this blog will contain spoilers.
The Main Story
The musical is about two Mormon kids who get their mission to recruit people to the Mormon religion. The main character known as Elder Price wanted to have his mission in Orlando, Florida. But him and his recruiting partner Elder Cunningham, receive a mission location of Uganda, Africa. Uganda is where the entire duration of the musical takes place. When they arrive in Uganda, the African people do not like Christ, which is immediately seen by the song "Hasa Diga Eebowai". It puts Price and Cunningham in a tough spot, as they face many challenges in converting the African People.
I am not going to go into the rest of the musical but I will now point out the similarities it has to the show.
References To South Park
A minor one is heard after the play's intermission where in a video, Trey uses his "You Guys" accent he typically uses in South Park as Cartman.
The larger one would be in one scene the majority of what Elder Cunningham explained when telling the African people about The Book Of Mormon was spot on with what Gary's family told Stan in All About Mormons, that particular part reminded me of the episode.
The Book Of Mormon is a must see, Trey and Matt put the humor right in your face but still keep the thrill of the Broadway musical experience. If you know people who may be offended, this may not be the musical to take them to but for anyone who loves South Park or a good laugh, this is a must see.
Well, that's my first blog post hence why I wanted to keep it short and why it may not be the best blog that's been written on this wiki, if you've seen The Book Of Mormon before, share your thoughts in the comments and if you have any questions about the musical, leave them there as well.
