The Book of Mormon Tickets
Created by the same people who brought you South Park, The Book of Mormon is religious satire with a message. Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone created the show to address the issue of organized religion. The play received several nominations and awards in 2011, and has had many successful showings since then.
The story is set in a small village in Uganda. The two lead characters, Kevin Price and Arnold Cunningham form the unlikely pair selected by the church elders to spread Mormonism in the area. Arnold Cunningham is the chubby, friendly, yet simplistic person who has little knowledge of the book of Mormon. The circumstances under which he joins the church are not revealed but he is different from the rest of his peers. The character provides repeated opportunities for laughter through his social awkwardness and at times when he tries to improvise due to his lack of knowledge.
Kevin Price is confident to the point of being arrogant. He has thorough knowledge of the book, and believes himself to be better than his peers. He is rigid at times when it comes to religion, and does not respect Cunningham at least during the first act.
The people of the village they are supposed to convert are ruled over by a tyrannical warlord. Those people are faced with every problem in the world including hunger, disease and poverty. At one point during the show, the unlikely duo of preachers joins the locals in a song only to discover that the entire song is blasphemous.
As the show progresses, Price gets fed up of the villagers while Cunningham successfully converts a few people. However, the knowledge provided by Cunningham to the villagers is a mix of science fiction and mythology, and has little to do with the book of Mormon.
The play concludes when the characters realize that religion’s purpose is to help people, and as long as the purpose is served, little details do not matter. The stories that Arnold Cunningham makes up to convert people, become known as the Book of Arnold. The church disowns the two missionaries, but they continue their work in the village.
The Book of Mormon caters to a diverse crowd. The music and choreography has been done tastefully, but the shows biggest attraction is the humor and satire. For intelligent viewers, the show will turn out to be a refreshing change. Many have critiqued the show for an overuse of profanity in the dialogues and in the lyrics. However, people who have watched South Park would know exactly what to expect.
