Book of Mormon Profane, Endearing

Broadway show blurbs can be banal and predictable, but not when it comes to The Book of Mormon. Oh, native Omahan Kurt Andersen might dub it “The best new musical of the 21st century” on NPR, but others call it “phenomenally blasphemous” and ask, “Could it be the most offensive show to ever hit the Great White Way?”

Top Talents Deliver Blue Barn’s Carnage

by Warren Francke

 

Call the play God of Carnage, open a Blue Barn season themed “Over the Edge” with two sets of wary parents on opposing leather couches, and you don’t expect to wait long before all hell breaks loose.
