One thing I absolutely wanted to do when we went to New York was see a show on Broadway. I've always loved going to the theatre and was desperate to see an amazing show performed by the best of the best. I wasn't particularly picky about what we saw, but I think we definitely made the best choice in going to see 'The Book of Mormon'.
The show itself was absolutely hilarious, but definitely not for the easily offended or the very religious. It follows two 'newly trained' Mormons on their journey to Uganda to convert the citizens of a small, deprived village.
We laughed the whole way through the performance and there were a few moments where I struggled for air. I thought my knowledge of the Mormon religion (thanks, GCSE History) would be useful in understanding the plot, but it was covered very easily in a few catchy songs. If you want a good laugh alongside some music that will be stuck in your head for days, 'The Book of Mormon' is definitely for you.
We also headed to Times Square as it was just around the corner from the theatre. It was definitely a lot busier than anywhere else we'd been but I didn't find it too overwhelming. It's just what I imagined it to be and everywhere you look there is a billboard or a street performer. It definitely gives you the 'chaotic New York' vibe.
As always, thank you for reading. I'm sadly home from New York now but I'm already looking into going again. Have you been? Let me know your thoughts on it with a comment!
