Now in Toronto, The Book of Mormon Boasts Broadway Blasphemy

APRIL 30 TO JUNE 9  The story seems simple enough: a pair of young Americans journey to Uganda to perform missionary work for the Church of the Latter-Day Saints. But in the hands of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, The Book of Mormon becomes an utterly berserk, shockingly un-PC and uproariously funny romp. Though unafraid to satirize some of the more divisive cultural issues of our time, this multiple Tony Award winner is also an all-singing, all-dancing spectacle in the grandest Broadway tradition. Princess of Wales Theatre, Tuesday to Saturday 8 p.m., Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday 2 p.m., $59 to $200; call 416-872-1212 or visit mirvish.com for more information.  —Anna Marszalek
