So going into The Book of Mormon, I had my doubts. South Park humor usually does not appeal to me, but I love Matt Doyle and have seen him in three shows, and I really wanted to know what the hype was about. Also, the music had been growing on me. It exceeded all of my expectations, and I now understand what the hype was all about. It was HILARIOUS! and totally cannot be compared to South Park. Even if you listen to the cast recording, there are tons of surprises that you would not know about and were so much fun to see. Whoever the costume designer was must have thought the writers were loons, because their show in Africa needed Darth Vadar, Genghis Khan, and other weird characters. The comedic timing of all the leading men was brilliant. I'm not a huge Nikki M. James fan, but it was exciting that the original cast member and Tony Award winner was still in the show was there. I would really recommend EVERYONE saving up the money for good seats and seeing it - it will DEFINITELY be worth it.
