THE BOOK OF MORMON - Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, Sarasota, FL. 11th Jan 2020



Not for tender ears.

Edgy.

Not a bit subtle.

Raunchy.  

"Adult" language.

Very funny! (tears in your eyes at times).

Unmemorable "formula music" (You don't leave whistling a tune!)

Under it all, a telling critique of western colonialist
 missionary efforts in Africa. 

Mormons get the rap in this show, but it could have been about any christian fundamentalist missionary group.

With the wonderful bonus of leaving the Van Wezel by the Bayside entrance and exit, to be greeted  the lovely bay.
