In a 2011 review of The Book of Mormon for New York Theatre Guide, Tulis McCall said: "this production bowls you over."
The Book of Mormon features a book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. Parker directs alongside Casey Nicholaw, who also choreographs the musical. Scenic design is by Scott Pask, with costume design by Ann Roth, lighting design by Brian MacDevitt and sound design by Brian Ronan.
