    I've been listening to this all day. It's unbelievably good. Luckily I also saw it in previews before tickets became impossible to get.

    I hate musicals.

    The soundtrack was recommended to me by a friend and I listened to it. I admit I laughed a few times, but I was really expecting more from Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Their music is usually consistently hilarious and these songs were just not quite up to the standards of all their other stuff.

    I was disappointed. I wasn't all that interested before, but now I really have no interest in seeing this.

    This is great. The other Stone/Parker movies have been great for movies, but wouldn't really work in a theater setting.

    They are nailing this.

    The thing is Mormons don't say I belive! They say I know.

    I know the Book of Mormon is True.

    I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God.

    I know, I know, I know, it's never I believe.

    I have to agree with much of the article. Reviews of the London production say how it manages to be both mocking, obscene, yet clever and unpredictable, and still highly musical and celebratory of the whole musical genre. It has something for quite a diverse range of audiences without being bland, etc.

    'Hello' is a very funny song!
