I loved it! Rude, crude, satirical, irreverent and ultimately sweet, almost with a moral to the story. The casting was excellent. Cody Jamison Strand steals the show as the anti-hero in the mode of early John Belushi sweetness with a sadistic twist. Singing and dancing were fun – and seemed to never stop.
Best of all were the two ads in the program from the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints proclaiming, “The book is always better”, featuring a lovely young woman of uncertain ancestry, and “You’ve seen the play…now read the book,” featuring a man of African ancestry. A sign of maturity is the ability to poke a bit of fun at yourself. And, the Mormons appear to be able to do just that.
