A good friend of mine recently gave me a pair of tickets to see the touring company production of “Book of Mormon.” I don’t know much about it other than the fact that it is very popular and supposedly very funny. On one hand I am very much looking forward to it. I love musicals and I love comedy. On the other hand, I am a bit uncomfortable with the idea of poking fun at someone else’s religion - and the Mormons are awfully easy targets.
Has anyone here seen this production? What did you think? Does it, in fact, poke fun at Mormonism? If so, is it good natured fun, or is it inappropriate?
