Book of Mormon Musical Review
In the week before half term, I went to see The Book of Mormon with my mum at the Prince of Wale theatre in London. I was really excited to see the show because I had heard an awful lot about it but was trying to keep an open mind until I had the chance to see it for myself.
Now let me start with the theatre. This really was a wonderful venue with and Art Deco style but very modern fixtures and fittings, the seats were comfortable, the bar was impressive and there was even a lift, which my mum who has trouble with stairs really appreciated!
The staff were also wonderful. Because we had booked accessible seats, we were met at the door and looked after at every moment from there on in! We were escorted down in the lift to the bar and then, when the house opened, we were taken to our seats, even the accessible toilet was accessible (you'd think this would be the case everywhere really wouldn't you?!). We were also checked on during the interval and then escorted back out again. The people looking after us literally couldn't have done anything more and should be highly commended!
The show itself though was just as wonderful. Obviously this deals with quite a controversial subject matter but in a very tongue in cheek way and the writing is absolutely hilarious. Even those people who are religious would seriously enjoy this, I have no doubt!
From the word go, the music and the choreography were excellent, the opening number hooked me in and that was me for the rest of the show! I thought the performance that the actors gave was excellent and all of their energy was delivered to us, the audience. Despite the fact that this show really does deal with real life issues it was still very light-hearted and I can't wait to go back again!
