There’s not much that’s sacred about this crazy musical comedy that pokes fun at the earnest, white-shirted religious recruiters from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints — aka Mormons — who get sent to Uganda and start making things up about their beliefs.
Here’s a tip about the 2011 Tony Award winning show’s creators: It’s the guys behind South Park and Avenue Q. It’s eye-poppingly crass and overtly profane, yet at the same time it’s laugh-out-loud funny and never mean-spirited.
Along the way it satirizes a couple of Broadway shows with witty, catchy tunes. Even Mormons have enjoyed the show, saying it’s like looking at themselves in a fun-house mirror.
July 31- Aug. 5. Tickets start at $39. Aronoff Center for the Arts, 650 Walnut St., Downtown, 513-621-2787, cincinnatiarts.org.
