"The Mormons Take Manhattan: The Book of Mormon soundtrack on God. The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical that pokes fun at the beliefs of The Church of Jesus Christ of Book of Mormon - Original Broadway Cast (CD).
However — and don't read this paragraph if you're sensitive to potential spoilers — the plot concerns teenaged missionaries sent to a brutal and lawless land to bring faith and hope to an impoverished natives. And while these teenaged missionaries don't follow the rules exactly, by the time the curtain falls they have — yes! The Messrs. Which kinda makes the sacrilegious Book of Mormon sweetly pro-Mormon. There is no need to here commend performers; they've been so highly praised thus far, by critics and audiences, that they don't need to be told how good they are.
James , and Rory O'Malley — who months ago were all-but-unknown along Broadway. We hear about star casting all the time, and how impossible it is for talented newcomers to get a decent break. The producers and authors and directors of The Book of Mormon gambled on newcomers, and I think they — the producers and authors and directors and the newcomers — will come out all right.
Let us also mention Michael Potts, who delivers the already-infamous "Hasa Diga Eebowai"; Brian Tyree Henry and Michael James Scott , who get to sing only a few laugh lines but do so convincingly; and the entire contingent of young Elders, who bring gleeful joy to the proceedings. Let us further salute Lewis Cleale, who is hidden away in several roles not even included in the cast list — Joseph Smith, Jesus — but who is of inestimable comic value to The Book of Mormon.
Nikki M. James photo by Joan Marcus Listeners will observe that the orchestrations sound considerably better than they do in the theatre. There is a reason for this: the CD does not use the show orchestrations.
The pit orchestrations by Larry Hochman and Stephen Oremus are canny, amusing, and thoroughly functional; but they are written for and performed by nine musicians, not the 23 on the CD.
Consider the string section: the show has one fellow switching between violin and viola; the CD has six violinists, two violists and two cellists. That's ten times as many strings on the cast recording as in the theatre, plus triple the reeds and double the brass. Hochman is one of our finest contemporary orchestrators, mind you; but there's only so much you can do with nine pieces.
But, then, economics were different — and She Loves Me wound up losing money. Which will not be the case with Mormon. Two electronic keyboards and one drummer make up a full third of the Mormon pit band; under these conditions, even the most talented orchestrator isn't going to get much orchestral color. Splurging on a larger orchestra for the CD makes perfect sense, mind you, when the producers can afford to do so, and is certainly not unheard of though usually to a much smaller extent.
The results, here, sound great; but what you hear on the cast album should not be mistaken for the Tony-nominated orchestrations. All of this Mormon discussion leaves us with a fundamental question.
Given the vast number of surprises, plot and otherwise, to be found on the CD — and considering the difficulty most theatregoers will have in scoring Mormon tickets in the near future — will listening to the CD in the meantime spoil the experience? Absolutely not, sez I.
Why deprive yourself of the fun? And this score is plenty of fun, whether on stage or CD. If you have tickets next week, or maybe even next month, you might want to wait. Otherwise, go ahead and enjoy Mormon now.
