  • Theater review: 'The Book of Mormon'

     Theater review: 'The Book of Mormon'
    Thank God. Broadway hit "The Book of Mormon" has arrived in Orlando with a production that, saints be praised, is as much a thrill as the original. Of course, the carefully plotted story, rip-roaring musical numbers and witty lyrics remain the same....
  • Alex Beam's 'American Crucifixion' takes on early Mormon history

    Review: 'American Crucifixion' by Alex Beam
    In 1844, when Illinois was the wild, wild west, an armed mob stormed a jailhouse and assassinated an American religious leader. And got away with it. The story of Mormon founder Joseph Smith's death 170 years ago receives a fascinating retelling in...

  • Guess Who's On The 'Mormon' Bandwagon

    Guess Who's On The 'Mormon' Bandwagon
    Here’s the pickle: The biggest Broadway hit of the new century celebrates (yay!) and mocks (uh-oh) your religion. What’s a latter-day church to do? If the show was “The Book of Mormon” and you were The Church of Jesus Christ of...

    Hippodrome production faithful to irreverent 'Mormon'
    Humor, unlike music, isn't a universal language. I mention this up front for the benefit of anyone who cannot find anything funny in religion, poverty, disease, genital mutilation or various other things targeted in "The Book of Mormon," the mega-...
  • In Utah, many want to pull down 'Zion Curtain' drinking laws

    SALT LAKE CITY — The art of bartending, Matthew Pfohl says, is all about the performance, the subtle dance of bottle and glass. Over his career this virtuoso of the high-end pour has dazzled customers, effortlessly grabbing a top-shelf gin, say...

    'Book of Mormon' packs fresh irreverence into traditional musical formula
    The curtain-raising scene of Jesus appearing "in ancient upstate New York" is the first little clue that "The Book of Mormon" is not your average Broadway musical. By the time the show ends, every politically incorrect button has been pushed, every...
