HELLO, Vancouver! The Book of Mormon Returns!


THE BOOK OF MORMON, winner of nine Tony Awards® including Best Musical, is back in Vancouver! 

I've seen the The Book of Mormon the last time it was here in Vancouver and it was the most hilarious musical I've ever been to. This time was no exception. The Book of Mormon ended with a well deserved standing ovation! I can rave and rave about the show but why not let someone who has seen it for the first time tell you all about The Book of Mormon. My guest has not seen The Book of Mormon before, nor know anything about the story prior to this. This is her review of the show: 

"The Book of Mormon has been on my list of musicals to see for quite some time. I love Broadway musicals and generally sing along to most of the famous broadway tunes. However, I have not watched the Book of Mormon before nor have I heard the music from it.  I did hear that it's very raunchy, explicit, slightly offensive (depending on who you are), and despite all of this it's a MUST see.

When the opportunity arose for me to see the Book of Mormon, I did not know what to expect. Most of the time, I'd read the summary of the musical online first, but this time I wanted to be completely surprised. It took all of one minute for me to be completely immersed with musical.  Everyone was super energetic and expressive. Most of all, I felt completely engaged and connected to everything happening on stage.  Although there were parts where I didn't catch what the actors or actresses said, it did not matter because every inch of their body was so expressive.  Best of all, the humour was witty and had me laughing in stitches for most scenes and sometimes it seems like this is a comedy show mixed in with a musical.  If this comes to town again, I'd definitely watch it again! Leave the kids at home though :)"

The Book of Mormon is musical not to be missed! It is currently playing at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and only here for a limited two-week engagement through Sunday September 4, 2016! Make sure to catch it before it's gone! Get your tickets at http://vancouver.broadway.com/shows/book-mormon-baa.
