Opening night at Washington's Kennedy Center Opera House, 7/9/13: Full house, good orchestra seats. Everyone I know who's seen it on Broadway said it was a hoot. My favorite professional reviewers in NYC and DC concurred. And now that I've seen it myself, so do I. The road show version is well cast, well staged, and a really, really, really good show in just about every way, except that it wasn't easy to catch all the lickety split wild and crazy lyrics and dialogue and I frequently found myself regretting not having thought to do what one of my companions did: he'd Googled his way through the lyrics ahead of time. The book and lyrics come off as sophomoric and only mildly silly on the page and nowhere near as hilarious and downright delightful as when they're performed on stage. I definitely would recommend reading this right before or right after the show. I do NOT recommend it as a substitute for seeing it onstage. (PS. I went online and ordered this from Amazon the morning after; got it the next day.)

I have a hearing impairment but wasn't able to get into the captioned showing of this play. The book was a great fall back option when I didn't know what was going on. Of course the lighting in the theater and the book's font made it difficult to read along, but I managed and still found the play enjoyable.

Overall, the book is a great memento from the play, the play itself was fantastic, and reading the book again from time to time outside of the play is still enjoyable. I personally think crudeness can be easily overdone, but this play manages a good balance between the witty and the crude. If you enjoy well-placed, daring humor, and don't take religion too seriously, I highly recommend.

After falling in love with "The Book of Mormon" soundtrack I wanted to know more about the story and since I can't exactly afford a trip to NYC to see the show (not that i could get a ticket) the book was the next best thing.

The book in includes a forward by Mark Harris, authors notes from each of the three authors, production history, a list of scenes and song titles and, finally, the complete script with song lyrics. The pages are nice and glossy with colorful accents and small photos from production throughout the script.

The script itself is brilliant. I think the review from Hollywood Reporter by David Rooney says it best:

"The show manages to have a comic field day with Mormonism while simultaneously acknowledging - maybe even respecting - the right of everyone to follow any faith they choose. Or invent."

I can't recommend this enough, if you like the soundtrack, or are curious to see what all the fuss is about and can't see the show itself this book is the perfect way to experience and enjoy "The Book of Mormon".

Full of interesting info, pictures, dialogue and lyrics - "The Book of Mormon: The Complete Book and Lyrics of the Broadway Musical" is a wonderful companion to the MUST have Broadway cast album CD. Although I originally purchased this book thinking it was the vocal score, I am still happy to place it into my music book library. Hopefully, I will will able to get tickets to the Broadway performance BEFORE they change from the original cast. The show is extremely hilarious, and not for the easily offended. To all those who give it 1 star, remember folks, it's a Broadway show. If you don't like the material, don't go see it!!

I keep trying to see a NY production of "The Book of Mormon", but the good seats are always taken by the time I try to get a ticket. So I decided to buy a copy of the play's script, which I started reading as soon as it arrived. I expected it to be hilarious, but was surprised by the weighty topics touched on in this musical: female circumcision; power-hungry, violent African tribal leaders; AIDS; despicable superstitions on how to cure AIDS in less-civilized African tribes; the inner workings of the Mormon religion; and others. I laughed through much of the script and cringed at just as much of it.

The ONLY problem I had with this script, but it was major for me,it is so very difficult to read because the print is in a color that does not show up plainly on the page. I have very low vision and had to use a magnifying glass and strong light to read it. This would not be a problem for anyone with normal sight.

Just one more item for my Book of Mormon obsession. If you don't have easy access to seeing the play, this and the cast recording are a blessing.
Honestly if you're familiar at all with Trey Parker and Matt Stone (South Park) or Bobby Lopez (Avenue Q and just recently Frozen if I'm not mistaken) then you'll love BoM. I'm assuming you already know that if you're on this page, though. It came in perfect condition and honestly it's a fun, colorful read. My little brother and I like to reenact it on days we're really bored.
