Book of Mormon

Monday, February 9th, 2015 | Reviews

I recently went to see Book of Mormon, the musical by creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

It was pretty good. Not amazing, but pretty good. I was a little disappointed that it was not about Joseph Smith, though Elina points out that it would have been difficult to do it about that for a wider public audience.

If anything, I think I was a little disappointed by the audience. The best jokes were often missed while the rather racist bits such as mispronouncing an African girl’s name, were lapped up.

Some of the songs were pretty catchy at least. The theatre was also pretty good; you were able to get a drink at the bar with reasonable speed.

Take a deep breath in, we’ve done it!

Another four more years. Then my mum can retire! Also, there was something else that we were celebrating four more years of, but it slips my memory. Here is a bad recording to remind us why…

On Friday, the new season of Perspective kicked off in Leeds with representatives from the Mormon faith coming down to talk to us. I was actually surprised how interesting and informative it is, there is actually quite a lot of deviation from traditional Christianity that is not immediately apparent.

We weren’t best prepared for the course not having things like plates but the food was never the less good and with Essentials now open until 10pm we even managed to source some coffee (Extras stocked it but they only had decaff so I just walked out).
