The Book of Mormon is offensive, but it’s equally as offensive to everyone despite your race, gender, or sexual preference. It’s not remotely appropriate for kids, and most older audiences will likely not be fans either. However, if you’re in the demographic that loves South Park (or really any of Comedy Central’s programming), you’ll likely love The Book of Mormon. This show was a breath of fresh air that kept a smile on our faces throughout the entire play. Your face will actually hurt from smiling so much.
