The World of West End: Book of Mormon

Honestly, I didn’t love the show that much, but that’s probably because I don’t really get crude humor.

I guess I’ll start with the positives though, of which there were a decent amount. There were a bunch of songs that had a strong clarinet part, so I found the orchestra to be amazing. The singers were all really good and I found their American accents pretty spot on as well as amusing. The dancing was probably the most impressive part of the show. The tap dancing was amazing and something that I know I would never be able to do without breaking essentially every bone in my body.

Okay, now that that’s out of the way. Like I said, maybe I just can’t appreciate crude humor, but whatever. I guess I see the point of the show. You don’t need to have an organized religion to help people and there’s different ways to help people and people just need to believe in something to keep themselves moving forward. I just don’t really think bashing God is the way to go about getting that message across and I think religion is a valid reason to go out and help people if you’re doing it in a respectful and encouraging way.

Something else I found interesting was that the majority of the audience was of the older generation, which was something that I wasn’t really expecting.

I don’t really have much else to say about the show because I’m not really entirely sure how I feel about it, so I guess for once you don’t need to hear me ramble on forever.
