What’s playing at the St. James Theatre?
The Book of Mormon is a parody of Mormon beliefs and practices that ultimately shows the power of service and love. The show is a musical comedy tracing two Mormon missionaries who try to preach to a remote African village. The missionaries are generally ignored as villagers are focused on more pressing issues from AIDs to famine to oppression from local warlords, but in the end, the villagers do buy into some of the missionaries' teachings and unite with the missionaries against the local warlords to make the town their own form of paradise.
The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards, including including Best Musical, and a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. It is the brainchild of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who partnered with Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez.
The show got rave reviews when it opened, including this gem from the Huffington Post in previews: “Is it as subversive as South Park? Unequivocally, The Book of Mormon is pee-in-pants funny, outrageous, shocking, which you’d expect. What you might not have seen coming are energetic and elaborate dancing, catchy tunes, insight into the nature of faith and the American hubris of spreading our brand of magic and lies all over the globe.”

The Book of Mormon runs approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes and has one intermission. The show is recommended for ages 12 and up, and children four and under are not permitted in the theater.
