The Book of Mormon

One of the highlights of the trip was being able to catch a musical! We were initially trying to find a musical that Anya could watch but it seems the only one that allows kids in is The Lion King, which we had already seen in Singapore. Our travelling companions were very kind and offered to look after the kids so that we could have a date night without the kids.

The Book of Mormon was the show I really wanted to watch when I was in New York with Debs last year but we didn’t get around to catching it. I’m so happy we managed to get tickets to watch it in London because it’s ridiculously funny! The show is by the creators of South Park and is about two young Mormon missionaries sent to Uganda to share The Book of Mormon with unexpected results. Needless to say, it is completely rude, irreverent and so entertaining. The songs are very catchy and the lyrics are a riot!

Would love to watch it again if I get the chance but I’m pretty sure it won’t come over here because it is probably considered too vulgar for Singapore and likely to be offensive to too many different groups of people.
