To make their lives seem better, the villagers repeat a phrase that translates as "Fuck you, God! Price and Cunningham are led to their living quarters by Nabulungi, Hatimbi's daughter. A cast recording of the original Broadway production was released on May 17, , by Ghostlight Records.
A free preview of the entire recording was released on NPR starting on May 9, During its first week of its iTunes Store release, the recording became "the fastest-selling Broadway cast album in iTunes history," according to representatives for the production, ranking No.
According to Playbill , "It's a rare occurrence for a Broadway cast album to place among the iTunes best sellers. A vinyl version was released on May 19, The Book of Mormon contains many religious themes, most notably those of faith and doubt. In addition, the central theme that many religious stories are rigid, out of touch, and silly comes to the conclusion that, essentially, religion itself can do enormous good as long as it is taken metaphorically and not literally. The Book of Mormon received broad critical praise for the plot, score, actors' performances, direction and choreography.
It praised the score, calling it "tuneful and very funny," and added that "the show has heart. It makes fun of organized religion, but the two Mormons are real people, not caricatures. That's enough to test the faith of even the most optimistic gospel spreaders not to mention songwriters. Yet in setting these dark elements to sunny melodies The Book of Mormon achieves something like a miracle. It both makes fun of and ardently embraces the all-American art form of the inspirational book musical.
No Broadway show has so successfully had it both ways since Mel Brooks adapted his film The Producers for the stage a decade ago. The ardently devout and comedically challenged are sure to disagree. Anyone else should excitedly approach the altar of Parker, Stone and Lopez and expect to drink from a cup of some of the sweetest poison ever poured.
The Book of Mormon is the first musical to open on Broadway since La Cage aux Folles that has the smell of a send-in-the-tourists hit. The amateurish part relates mostly to the score, which is jointly credited to the three co-creators and is no better than what you might hear at a junior-varsity college show.
The tunes are jingly-jangly, the lyrics embarrassingly ill-crafted. The show's depiction of Africans has been called racist. The danger is not when people laugh but when they take it seriously—if they leave a theater believing that Mormons really do live in some kind of a surreal world of self-deception and illusion," Otterson wrote, outlining various humanitarian efforts achieved by Mormon missionaries in Africa since the early s.
The official church response was something along the lines of " The Book of Mormon the musical might entertain you for a night, but the Book of Mormon,"—the book as scripture—"will change your life through Jesus. The Mormon church's response to this musical is almost like our Q. That's a cool, American response to a ribbing—a big musical that's done in their name.
Before the church responded, a lot of people would ask us, "Are you afraid of what the church would say? There are going to be protests. We had faith in them. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has advertised in the playbills at many of the musical's venues to encourage attendees to learn more about the Book of Mormon , with phrases like "you've seen the play, now read the book" and "the book is always better.
In Melbourne during the run, the Church advertised at Southern Cross railway station and elsewhere in the city, as well as on television with ads featuring prominent Australian Mormons, including rugby league player Will Hopoate , stage actor Patrice Tipoki and ballet dancer Jake Mangakahia. Mormons themselves have had varying responses to the musical.
Richard Bushman , professor of Mormon studies, said of the musical, "Mormons experience the show like looking at themselves in a fun-house mirror. The reflection is hilarious but not really you. The nose is yours but swollen out of proportion. When asked in January if he had met Mormons who disliked the musical, Gad stated "In the 1.
