The 1st time I saw this was in ST.Louis it was fantastic but I was even more impressed when I saw this musical again in Chicago. The music & actors fit so well with this humorous story about the absurdity of the Mormon beliefs. It...More

I wish it was possible to give this a lower score. I am not old and I enjoy good and even simple humor as much as the next person, but this was ridiculous. The jokes were incredibly weak and totally obvious. I am not religious...More

I was SO looking forward to this musical. And there was great performances, songs, dances etc. But I could never ever recommend this musical. Rape of a baby is never funny. Female mutilation is never funny. In this day and age when there are so...More

This was total garbage for which we had paid good money and endured a five hour train journey. It was neither funny nor clever and after 45 minutes of enduring this tripe we chose to walk out. We are not religious in any way so...More

This is a very racist show, depicting Blacks are morally void baby raping savages. Lots of offensive F-Bombs, including a song where the words were F*** YOU GOD. There were many crude jokes about F***ING BABIES. How in the world do people find this to...More

Saw this in Tampa, Fl. on 12/10/17. Neither my wife nor I can understand how this has been well received by a significant number of people. In our view, the story line is dumb, silly even, and the dialogue is tasteless. We are not prudes...More

This musical is extremely entertaining and vulgar for those who enjoy inappropriate content. I have seen this musical twice (Columbus, Chicago) with the same cast and they were awesome. I would see this show again.

Beautiful, majestic building, now The Private Bank Theater. Book of Mormon by this talented touring company was good fun. The audience thoroughly enjoyed this highly irreverent look at religion in general and the Church of Latter Day Saints in particular. Be warned that you have...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
