The Book of Mormon

We saw the musical in NYC today.  Our expectations were high when we went in based on the reviews and awards it had been getting.  I'm always cynical about reviews because I think my review is the only one that counts.

Is "Brilliant" too strong of a word?

And to all of those folks criticizing it because it's "offensive" - without actually having seen it.. Zip It.  Yes - it's adult humor - but not pornographic.  Yes - it uses some dialogue (in song) that consists of four letter words directed towards "God" - and it's frickin' hilarious!

By the end I had tears in my eyes.  (another advantage of being a Gay man...I can put in print that I had tears in my eyes at a Broadway musical).  I think I actually called the ending "Beautiful"...(another word a Gay man can get away with after seeing a Broadway musical).

Did I mention that it's "Brilliant"?
