Hailed as "the best musical of this century" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and "the funniest musical of all time" by Entertainment Weekly, The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- in its first year on Broadway. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, this musical comedy is a show that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has called "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry." Now, the national touring production returns to Boston. Learn More

I thought this production at Footlights was sub-par. Many of the actors didn't project, and we strained to hear them even though our seats were in the fourth row. Additionally, some of the actors were not confident enough to pause until the audience laughter died down before continuing, so a number of lines were not heard at all by the audience.
The sound effects were not sufficient either - the "fireworks" sounded like a flushing toilet.
I don't know if I would have known what was going on on stage if I didn't already know the plot.
Set was fine, but every time someone sat on the green chaise lounge I girded myself for it's collapse (because the seating is basically at stage level we can see the underside of the the furniture).
Like I said, I have seen much better, and will continue to patronize and recommend the Footlights Club.
Could the daughter of a family of free spirits possibly marry the son of her Wall Street boss? It's fireworks when the two New York families meet in You Can't Take it With You! An enormous hit on Broadway when it premiered in 1937 and later adapted into an Oscar winning film by Frank Capra, "You Can't Take it With You" is a madcap comedy that is sure to lift your spirits!
