Frogs, Star Trek, and laughs, oh my! Welcome to the magical world of THE BOOK OF MORMON, where you will laugh out loud at the non-stop jokes and have your heartstrings pulled as your favorite player searches for their purpose. THE BOOK OF MORMON is running December 26th-30th at the Music Hall in downtown Kansas City, and it is not to be missed. Due to the PG-13 content, I wouldn’t recommend children seeing it, but it’s a fun date night for you and your other.
The story is about two Mormon missionaries, Elder Price and Elder Cunningham, who
Liam Tobin as Elder Price has a clear-cut stellar voice and his comedic timing is perfect. Kayla Pecchioni as Nabulungi sings with heart and soul as the character seeks for a better life. Andy Huntington Jones is hilarious as Elder McKinley, the mission leader in Africa. His ability to make you uncontrollably giggle as he tries to “Turn it off,” but not really, is exceptional. But my favorite character is Elder Cunningham, played spectacularly by Connor Pierson. His exuberance is infectious as he holds the audience in the palm of his hand with ease and heart. I think every person there wanted to be his friend by the end of the show. Finally, a big shout out to the ensemble, who are altogether impressive as they lay out jokes like it is second nature, tap dance in the dark and keep their energy up creating magic for the massive audience
