More information about Final Jeopardy:
After the smashing sucess of The Book of Mormon, the LDS Church bought advertising in the playbill for the Los Angeles production of the musical. The church’s official response to the musical when it was released in 2011 was:
The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening, but the Book of Mormon as a volume of scripture will change people’s lives forever by bringing them closer to Christ.
The church was generally praised for its bold position in electing not to protest the musical, instead simply encouraging people to learn more about their beliefs.
