  The Book of Mormon at Ahmanson Theatre

The Book of Mormon

Ahmanson Theatre
135 North Grand Ave Los Angeles

The New York Times calls it “the best musical of this century.” The Washington Post says, “It is the kind of evening that restores your faith in musicals.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time." It’s The Book of Mormon, the nine-time Tony Award®-winning Best Musical from the creators of South Park. This outrageous musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries, sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word. Now with standing room only productions in London, on Broadway, and across North America, The Book of Mormon has truly become an international sensation. This production contains explicit language.

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...The show was created by "South Park" masterminds Trey Parker and Matt Stone, working with Robert Lopez, the music man whose previous credits included "Avenue Q" and afterward, "Frozen." As in "South Park," the humor here straddles a line between stupid and brilliant."

LA Daily News - Highly Recommended

"...The musical numbers remain crisp and memorable - including the Act 1 highlights "Turn It Off," an ode to repression, "Sal Tlay Ka Siti," Nabulungi's sweet expression of hope, and "Hello," the show's iconic doorbell-ringing opening. Act 2 features the Ugandans' exhilarating showstopper "Joseph Smith American Moses" and Elder Price's soaring (and increasingly ridiculous) "I Believe.""

Broadway World - Highly Recommended

"...After three successful runs in Los Angeles in 2012, 2014, and 2017 at the Pantages, that smut-mouthed, but endearing musical comedy The Book Of Mormon has squatted downtown at the Ahmanson, and third time around, it has lost none of its luster, or its smut."

Stage and Cinema - Highly Recommended

"...Well, here's a national tour that isn't resting on its laurels. Somewhat tighter with impeccably glorious performances, a golden angel high above at the center of a light-filled proscenium arch seems to trumpet, The Book of Mormon is here to douse your doldrums with a delirious, dandy delight. It remains beautifully irreverent without being mean. Far and away, this tour is the best of three I've seen. I loved, loved, loved it. Not enough to convert to Mormonism, but enough to keep me hooked on musical comedy until the next best thing comes along."

LA Splash - Highly Recommended

"...For once, all the hype about a musical is true. THE BOOK OF MORMON deserves all the accolades it has received since 2011 - and then some. Originally the brainchild of Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez in 2003, it took seven years of slow but steady development before the show took its final form. With book, music, and lyrics by the trio, THE BOOK OF MORMON was finally born on Broadway in 2011, becoming a smash hit with nine Tony Awards (and lots of nominations) under its belt, including the coveted Best Musical. THE BOOK OF MORMON even won a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album."

Stage Scene LA - Highly Recommended

"...It's taken eight years of touring the U.S. for The Book Of Mormon to pay its first visit to the Ahmanson, but the 2011 Best Musical Tony winner's distinctive mix of raunch, romance, hilarity, and heart make it a show worth waiting for as it continues to pack them in NYC."

On Stage Los Angeles - Highly Recommended

"...Superlatives and hyperbole have not been my style in the many reviews I've written over time. All the hype for The Book of Mormon had me reluctant to find brilliance in it, but from first blush where we meet Mormon (Steven Telsey), Moroni (Andy Huntington Jones) and Joseph Smith (Ron Bohmer), it's a romp! A joy filled extravaganza!"

Total Theater - Recommended

"...The Book of Mormon has been criticized for its stereotypical portrait of the Africans, but because everyone else in the show is satirized just as rudely and crudely, one can't take the complaint all that seriously. The lowbrow humor is also reflected in the songs (one of which tells God to fuck off) and in many of the dances. Bad taste rules the day in Mormon; it is a paean to the dirty joke and it laughs like hell at mankind's follies and foolishness, especially where religion and community are concerned. But the show also has heart and compassion in its DNA, and it is directed and performed with such skill and flair that it's hard to speak ill of it."

Willard Manus


Cultural Weekly - Highly Recommended

"...First staged in 2011, The Book of Mormon largely parodies beliefs held by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with a redemptive message tossed in: when community members band together, feel-good good-will fun results. Yes-in a way that takes us back to religion, but in this show, it includes a decidedly wry twist."

Showmag - Highly Recommended

"...Jointly directed by Nicholas and Parker, the production is slick and has just the right amount of humor laced with humanity. Stephen Oremus' music supervision and vocal arrangements elevate this comedy. Brian MacDevitt's lighting design and Brian Ronan's sound design greatly enhance all the quasi-religious moments along with large ensemble production numbers. Andrew Graham's music direction is integral."

"...It's been nine years since it first opened on Broadway, and The Book of Mormon is back on tour and just as raunchy and remarkable as ever."

Hollywood Revealed - Highly Recommended

"...The Book of Mormons is a ton of fun. It is old school Broadway. At its core, a sweet "road movie" that sends a redemptive message about personal faith and friendship that clearly shines through. With top of the line performances by a committed cast, great music, beautiful sets and lighting design and a frivolous hilarity, this show is a must-see."

On Stage Blog - Highly Recommended

"...The casting is perfect with not just one stand out performer, but multiple talented Broadway professionals, including handsome Elder Price (Liam Tobin) hoping to be assigned to Orlando, instead of to a remote village in Uganda with a frumpy, storytelling Elder Cunningham (Jordan Matthew Brown)."

Its Not About Me - Highly Recommended

"...Yes, I am the one person who's never seen The Book of Mormon before. So I wanted to see it so much by now that I gave up four other lovely invitations for the same evening to attend this show's opening night at the Ahmanson Theatre. And the verdict is...I'm so glad I did!"
