1.5 star rating Jodi g from Seattle, Washington


The person on the soundboard needs to go sit in the audience to experience the tortious aural assault. Distortion rendered the lyrics incomprehensible and the volume painful. The paramount is not known for great acoustics but Jersey Boys was well delivered for the venue. Given reviews from other cities, perhaps the sound company should be fired. I think the leads could sing, but not sure. I found the story line(if you can claim one) disappointing given that my favorite South Park episode is Book of Mormon. This didn't give me any brief moments of being able to pretend to be at a broadway production once the lights went down. Limited humourous lines, mediocre ensemble dancing and singing. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.

We were very disappointed in not only the show but the theater. Our seats were in the far corner of the theater and we could not see the stage. When I approached the usher to ask for assistance, I was told there are cushions in the lower level of the theater. By then, the show was about to start and I would not have been re admitted . What a rip off! I sat thru the entire first act not being able to see thru the heads of the people in front of me. I've never had dress circle seats as bad as these , especially considering we paid $240 for two seats We hated the show, it was not one bit funny . It portrayed the Africans as idiots . I can enjoy a irreverent humor but this wasn't humorous in the slightest. It was stupid and offensive. The terrible experience at the Bank of American theater was our last.

We have seen many broadway shows over the years, but had never left at intermission, until tonight. Loud, vulgar and no talent cast!

1.0 star rating Black in the Northwest from Seattle, Washington


If this web site gave me the capability to select ZERO stars I would gladly rate it that low! Did the actors do their jobs? Yes. But the content is racist, homophobic and mysogynistic. I cringed for the Black performers each time they delivered a demeaning line. Yes, I realize BOM is written by the creators of South Park, but this went above and beyond their version of dark humor. The blogger at Blackandoutside summarized my feelings on this piece of garbage perfectly in his August 29, 2016 post. Go there if you care to read more - no sense in reinventing the wheel AND this website won't allow me to include a link to the article "F**k the Book of Mormon". I was disappointed to see such a large number of theater goers in a city that is known for voting "blue" and where Black Lives Matter signs are in so many yards laughing and enjoying this vile, offensive piece of crap.

1.0 star rating Joel from Providence, Rhode Island


I literally did not laugh once during this show. Most of the people around me didn't laugh either. It's not that I'm easily offended; I'm not. In fact I thought the show would be a lot more offensive. And it's not that I don't appreciate comedy-- I love good humor. But the comedy in this show was just stupid. You really have to be really, easily amused to find this to be a laugh out loud show. And there was only one good piece of music, which was the "I Believe" song-- which you can probably watch for free on YouTube, so I would save your money and do that. We go to lots of shows at PPAC, and this was the most boring one.

1.0 star rating Dianne from Providence, Rhode Island


Worst ever show. I could not believe the profanity. I was disgusted with the language and actions. We found no humor to this play. Never would recommend this to anyone.

1.0 star rating GMN from Schenectady, New York


It is vulgar and offensive. How can anyone find the raping of babies and young people to be funny. Someone next to me asked why I wasn't laughing and I asked how can you be laughing at this subject matter. I walked out. I found it disheartening that the audience was clapping and laughing instead of booing and walking out.

What we thought

HILARIOUS ingenius Unmissable

One of the best musicals I have EVER seen!

If heaven promises to "have it all", then The Book of Mormon is paradise on Broadway - populated with the naughty and nice. After all, this provocative production has been running since 2011 - making it one of New York's top attractions!
