The Book of Mormon

Yvonne AK Johnson Theatre

It’s news to anyone that the Book of Mormon Show is still one of the most coveted, expensive, and impressive shows on the market these days. The Broadway show has been around for a few years now and have maintained their 100 percent capacity audiences for every show.

The average ticket to one of the shows costs $200 and the highest up to $500, depending on the location.

For those of you who are unfamiliar, the Book of Mormon show was written by “South Park” masterminds Matt Stone and Trey Parker. The New York Times called it “the best new musical (so far, anyway) of the 21st century.”

Surprisingly, the show didn’t get the highest praise from British critics, even though the show set a single-day London sales record.

The show is filled of foulmouthed singing and absurdly jolly dancing as young Mormon missionaries recruit in Uganda.

Possibly one of the best takeaways from the popularity of the show is the vast variety of people who are embracing the musical and theatre in general. “Mormon” draws everyone from teenagers to the older members of the community. “Mormon” has a great marketing campaign as it emphasizes it’s sweetness that redeems the comic sin.

Stone believes that the full house turnout has a profound and beneficial effect on the “Mormon” performers. He says that the buzz of a sellout keeps the actors’ energy levels up and creates a more interactive show “When the cast does the show well, whatever cast it is, it’s a great show.” Obviously this occurs in every show, but specifically for “Mormon” they’ve received plenty of praise from their audiences as their audiences have helped them too.
