Book Description

5 Dec 2012

The only official companion book to the Tony Award winner for Best Musical from the creators of South Park and the co-creator of Avenue Q. Features the complete script and song lyrics, with 4-color spot illustrations throughout, an original introduction by the creators, and a foreword by Mark Harris.

The Book of Mormon, which follows a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get, features book, music, and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone.

Parker and Stone are the four-time Emmy Award–winning creators of Comedy Central's landmark animated series South Park. Tony Award–winner Lopez is co-creator of the long-running hit musical comedy Avenue Q. The Book of Mormon is choreographed by three-time Tony Award–nominee Casey Nicholaw (Monty Python's Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone) and is directed by Nicholaw and Parker.

The book includes • an original foreword by journalist Mark Harris (author of Pictures at a Revolution) • an original introduction by the authors on the genesis of the show • a production history • the complete book and lyrics, with four-color spot illustrations throughout.

If you won't have the chance to watch the show live in America (like me), but u're a fan of the work of Mr. Parker and Mr. Stone, it's what you need to get the plot of the play. Every once and a while a small photo indicates the costumes of the characters on that scene, to set the mood.
If you've bought the cd, I'm telling you you're missing a lot of the plot by just listening to the songs. And if you haven't bought it yet, go buy it! The original music is simply amazing and sooo entertaining.
There's no more to say: if you're an admirer of their work, you gotta have it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Book of Awesome 7 July 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Went to see The Book of Mormon in the Westend and bought this afterwards for my other half. As well as ALL the song lyrics there's a wealth of background information and extra information. This show is not for the faint hearted and does indeed address some graphic themes. Nonetheless, this is a fantastic book and indeed Man up still makes me giggle.

this was fun. trey parker is a unique talent and one of the only celebrities i would make an effort to compliment if seen in a restaurant. huge fan of team america, south park uncut feature and the shorts. this is fun. my lady and i bought the soundtrack on iTunes and effectively read this book out loud in real time then shut up to listen to the next musical number, then pause the sounds and kept reading on. we tried to see the play in Manhattan on a recent trip but of course it was sound out for months.

i think seeing the performance of the actors would help this somewhat simple story.

ps, as far as physically owning this play book i'm proud enough to have it in the house on the shelf with other notable items. the book although slim is brown and kind cool. the text inside has a couple extra colors and some photos from the play. kinda a rich product not a printed script, black and white.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you can't make it to Broadway... 22 Jun 2011
By Theresa L. Frankiewich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
After falling in love with "The Book of Mormon" soundtrack I wanted to know more about the story and since I can't exactly afford a trip to NYC to see the show (not that i could get a ticket) the book was the next best thing.

The book in includes a forward by Mark Harris, authors notes from each of the three authors, production history, a list of scenes and song titles and, finally, the complete script with song lyrics. The pages are nice and glossy with colorful accents and small photos from production throughout the script.

The script itself is brilliant. I think the review from Hollywood Reporter by David Rooney says it best:

"The show manages to have a comic field day with Mormonism while simultaneously acknowledging - maybe even respecting - the right of everyone to follow any faith they choose. Or invent."

I can't recommend this enough, if you like the soundtrack, or are curious to see what all the fuss is about and can't see the show itself this book is the perfect way to experience and enjoy "The Book of Mormon".

5.0 out of 5 stars The PERFECT companion to the Cast Recording 7 July 2011
By Brocky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you love The Book of Mormon, this is definitely a book you need to pick up. It's the complete libretto along with pictures of the cast and even close up shots of some of the fun props and costumes used in the production. The actual book of the show is hilarious and has a lot more heart than what you get from the CD. Hands down the Best Musical Libretto I've seen for sale in a good long while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best script I have read of a musical in YEARS! 29 Jun 2011
By My Wife Is Fat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was not expecting how amazing the quality of the writting would be from a Trey Parker and Matt Stone musical. Wow....the lyrics are so clever and the writing is nothing short of fantastic. I just bought tickets to go see this show in October cause they are sold out for MONTHS!!!! If you want a taste of this musical, get a copy of this script and soundtrack and enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars RIBALD FILTH + GOOD HUMOR = GREAT MUSICAL! 7 Aug 2011
By Alan W. Petrucelli - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Can't get a ticket? (They are going on the black market for nearly $750 each!) Then start your theatergoing by starting a new chapter in literature. The book features the complete script and song lyrics, with stunning color illustrations throughout, an original introduction by show creators Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone and an engaging foreword by Mark Harris. (He`s not kidding when he writes "The Book of Mormon is not just great theater. It's great writing.") Parker and Stone are the four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of the landmark animated series South Park; Tony-winner Lopez is co-creator of the long-running hit musical comedy Avenue Q. It's hard to say much about a musical whose book is riddled with enough ribald filth, good humor and universal love to offend everyone . . . not just Donny and Marie. So we say this: Bravo!

This is an absolutely wonderful companion to the cast album. It fills in all the gaps you might have listening to the album and is just plain funny.
