Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

A Broadway musical about missionaries doesn't sound like a winning venture, but South Park co-creators Trey Parker and Matt and Avenue Q wizard Robert Lopez turned that formula into just that with their nine-Tony Award-winning The Book of Mormon. This lively production won friends everywhere; from average theatergoers to the Vogue critic who called it "possibly the funniest musical ever." This coffee-table spectacular rolls out the story of the musical, its creation and production in lavish pictorial detail. In addition to the colorful illustrations, the hardcover contains the complete book and lyrics and behind the scenes from the creators, cast, and crew. The ultimate companion to a history-making musical.

Ben Brantley
“The best musical of this century. Heaven on Broadway. The Book of Mormon achieves something like a miracle.”
Jon Stewart
“A crowning achievement. A huge smash success. So good it makes me angry.
Peter Marks
“Matt and Trey: Where have you been all my life? The Book of Mormon deserves worship. Approach the altar of Parker and Stone.”
Mark Harris
The Book of Mormon is not just great theater. [It’s] great writing.”
Peter Travers
“**** the new gold standard for Broadway. The Book of Mormon is on its march into legend. History is made.”
Kurt Andersen
“The best new musical of the 21st century.”
Chris Jones
“Surely goes further than any musical in Broadway history. Hilariously profane and wholly hilarious.”
David Finkle
“Hilarious, uproarious, and highly entertaining. Parker and Stone may offend thousands if not more, and bless their iconoclastic hearts for it.”
Maxim

Meet the Author

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, met Bobby Lopez, the co-creator of Avenue Q, in 2003. That meeting inspired them to create a musical comedy that the New York Times would one day call "the best musical of this century."
