If you’re still piqued by the buzz that has surrounded The Book of Mormon since its first staging in 2011, you have just five more performances before the excellent production now at The Kentucky Center moves on down the road.
The cast features Louisville native and YPAS graduate Kayla Pecchioni as the female lead, Nabulungi, an imperiled member of a Uganda tribe whose world is changed by the arrival of a pair of missionaries from Mormon headquarters in Salt Lake City. Among an excellent cast of principals, her performance of the sweetly vulnerable young woman who comes to fall in love with the Lord and the man who makes the introduction completely beguiled me.
And whatever cost of the ticket, you’ll get your money’s worth from the over-the-top “Man Up” and the devilish “Spooky Mormon Hell.”
