Most enlightening review of the Book of Mormon Musical

Which I badly sum up in my own words here:
Thinks religion is ridiculous, but Mormon people are nice.  They got the doctrinal details correct.  It's crude, the language goes beyond a few f-words.  There are on-stage sex acts, mimed I presume.  Very, very funny if you like South Park humor, but music isn't that great (road show?) and performers aren't A-list quality.  Evident racism in the way the Ugandan characters are presented.  Big reliance on shock value.

I haven't seen the show, unlike the reviewer I link to above.
My husband saw the show and liked it, but I don't think I would.
