  • Saw Book of Mormon. Show was very entertaining. Fans of South Park will obviously enjoy the show a lot. Highly recommended. Doesn't seem like there would be a bad seat anywhere in the theater. Staff here was very good too. Cast members were outside after the show for pictures and autographs.
  • I thoroughly enjoyed this theater. I have seen the Book of Mormon three times. I love this show. I have never laughed this hard at any other show. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Do not pass up the opportunity to visit this theatre. You will not be disappointed.
