Saw Book of Mormon

Thought it was juvenile, small-minded and mean. But I did laugh a few times in the second act.

Hard to say. It depends how long "Mormons are stupid and their religion is dumb" jokes will hold your interest. The second act is much better than the first because it goes in to full on South Park gross-out humor, but even that got old relatively quickly.

I saw it in NYC 2 weeks ago and thought it was hilarious.

In the audience? I have no idea.

ok, it was pretty hilarious. They weren't nearly as bad to Mormons as I expected and in fact they took full liberty at plenty of other stereotypes.

even when you peel back the funny, offensive, and the crude, it was a very well thought out production that was cast equally well (thought not all were brilliant singers). I was impressed, and so was my wife who sees a lot more shows than I do.

Another friend saw it Saturday night and loved it. Obviously, I am a cranky old man.
