Season Survey

Roughly once a quarter I write about Broadway shows for the Catholic journal America, and though I wish I had seen the relatively amazing Jerusalem and the surprisingly (to me, at least) sharp and smart Bengal Tiger in the Baghdad Zoo by my deadline, I had plenty to cover with The Book of Mormon, The Motherfucker With the Hat (the title of which, interestingly, gets a more full printing in this Catholic magazine than in the New York Times), Good People, and War Horse.

It didn't surprise me at all how truly sincere The Book of Mormon turned out to be. Granted I read reviews by actual Mormons saying so, but I'd been watching South Park for years.
I was in New York over the summer and was able to get Book of Mormon tickets and was not disappointed. I'm still humming "Hasa Diga Eebowai." A far cry from Disney, to be certain.
I also saw several other Broadway Shows while there. I highly recommend "Avenue Q" and "Warhorse".
I must like props.
