Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...This national tour production gets the job done, matching the stampeding verve, if not the granulated sharpness, of the original Broadway production."

Charles McNulty

Variety - Recommended

"...The cast shows no evidence of being second tier, and production values are as lavish and performance style as crisp as at the show’s nativity. As long as you don’t go expecting the Second Coming, you’re unlikely to be let down by this breathlessly funny, solidly crafted musical satire."

Backstage - Recommended

"...The joyous West Coast premiere of Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone’s Tony-winning gusher doesn’t just meet expectations; it tramples them. Neither Broadway musicals nor tuner devotees will ever be quite the same."

David C. Nichols

Broadway World - Recommended

"...Exuding an unparalleled rhythm and spirit, it is at once profane yet totally humane. With a stellar touring cast and astounding direction from Broadway directors Casey Nicholaw, who has also choreographed brilliantly, and Trey Parker, who also wrote the book, music and lyrics with partners Matt Stone and Robert Lopez, Book of Mormon is irresistible heaven at the Pantages through November 25, but buy your tickets now to avoid disappointment."

The Hollywood Reporter - Recommended

"...It’s a rousing show on all counts, and above all, The Book of Mormon is unafraid to let the chorus boys be chorus boys, bless them each and every unabashed one, hoofing up a storm at regular and welcome intervals in superb crowd-pleasing choreography, eschewing acrobatics for classically honed steps."

Myron Meisel

Examiner - Recommended

"...Much of it is, indeed, quite funny and the powerhouse showmanship of the whole endeavor (Nicholaw’s dance numbers especially) are much to be admired. If you’ve ever seen any big budget Broadway musical over the past, say, 15 years, and are in on the joke, you’ll howl. “Hasa Diga Eebowai” expertly lampoons “The Lion King’s “Hakuna Matata.” It also makes the reference explicit."

The Tolucan Times - Recommended

"...The show is hilarious with lively music which propels the surprising story at such a rapid pace that you want a ballad to pop up so you can catch your breath."

Pauline Adamek

Campus Circle - Recommended

"...Overall this show is incredible. It is as hilarious as it is impressive, and offers a satirical point of view that is hard to argue with. Just as crass as one would expect from the co-creators of “South Park”, “The Book of Mormon” is so much more than a few funny jokes told on stage. It is an outrageous performance, a well-written musical, and the Pantages’ hottest ticket this year."

LA Stage Times - Recommended

"...In short, despite the brash four-letter words and images that are flung around in The Book of Mormon, the meaning of the show isn’t entirely on the surface. It’s a creation with layers inside layers."

Don Shirley

OC Register - Recommended

"...You’ll also marvel at the level of craft and even aesthetic conservatism hidden beneath the frat boy humor. “The Book of Mormon,” for all its irreverence, takes the tenets of musical theater seriously. That’s the biggest surprise of the evening: three iconoclastic guys have written a values-affirming show that obeys many of the art form’s rules and even throws a few valentines to its ancestors."

TheatreMania - Recommended

"...Here, they manage to juggle an extraordinary balance of X-rated songs, belly laughs, a morality play, a touching buddy tale, and it all manages to work."

Jonas Schwartz

Daily 49er - Recommended

"...Much like that episode, The Book of Mormon in LA is a brilliant religious satire, but it avoids being too mean-spirited. In fact, the overly cheerful, yet naïve missionaries in the show come off as endearing, and their cheerful outlook in the face of danger and despair gives the show an irreverent humor. Although the musical has its share of delightfully cringe-worthy moments, it still knows exactly where its heart lies and manages to be strangely uplifting."

Matt Grippi

San Diego Jewish World - Recommended

"...Then again, “Mormon” is at least as savagely satirical toward musical theater as it is toward Utah’s chief religious export, and that hasn’t stopped this show from earning near-fanatical devotion (and scads of cash, and nine Tony Awards) on Broadway."
