The Book of Mormon (get tix now for Valentine's Day 2013)



I have a confession to make. I don’t love South Park. And I wasn’t particularly impressed with Matt Stone and Trey Parker when I “met” them on 60 Minutes. So when I bought tickets to The Book of Mormon for my bf back in September (for his bday in October) the gift was truly selfless. (If I had gotten tickets to, say, the RHCP “for him,” that would’ve really been for me…) Sure, I wanted to see The Book of Mormon, but I wasn’t like dying to get to the show. And the literal 6-month wait for tickets seemed a little over-the-top. But alas, anything for my main squeeze. 

So last week we went to see The Book of Mormon. In retrospect, I should’ve looked at the Ticketmaster seat map and chosen with a discerning eye rather than pick “first available tickets” when purchasing our seats via my blackberry while on a train to Montauk… I mean our seats weren’t the worst, but they weren’t good. But it didn’t matter. The Book of Mormon was AMAZING, in a perverse, ridiculous and hilarious sort of way. And it told a lovely story about humanity; it didn’t just ridicule Mormonism. Going into it, I was sure the show was over-hyped…

"The best musical of this century. So impeccably produced on every level.” – The New York Times

“The perfect Broadway musical.” – Entertainment Weekly

“The filthiest, most offensive and-surprise-sweetest thing you'll see on Broadway this year, and quite possibly the funniest musical ever.” – Vogue Magazine


But The Book of Mormon wasn’t over-hyped. It exceeded my expectations. And hopefully the birthday boy’s too. 


P.S. Did you know you can pay for standing room only? Seems a little silly, but I think it’s worth it! See here for the complete list of tips for getting tix, brought to you by The Book of Mormon.
