Derivative, but still loads of fun!,

This review is from: The Book of Mormon (Audio CD)
The tenor and texture of the music reminds me of "The Producers" but this is a work of greater substance with more gravitas and more sophistication. Those with "calibrated ear drums" may detect musical phrases reminescent of Rogers & Hammerstein, Steven Schwartz and Schönberg/Boublil ("Miss Saigon" "Les Miz"), but the sunniness of the tunes and the spirited performances will win you, nonetheless. The lyrics are witty and biting and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny. It easily the most pleasant and tuneful way to get weaned-off organized religion I can think of.
