CRITICS' PICKS
2013-01-02

The Book of Mormon, Bank of America Theatre, through June 2. The creators of South Park and a co-creator of Avenue Q have concocted a hilariously blasphemous and frequently raunchy Broadway musical that smartly takes on Mormon culture and African superstitions. Yet the musical also stresses the importance of faith, friendship and belief, so the show carries an emotional heart along with being a cutting equal-opportunity offender. SCM

Metamorphoses, Lookingglass Theatre, through Jan. 6; Mary Zimmerman's adaptation of myths old (mostly) and new remains a visual feast and a dream-like, sensual experience with a fine balance of humor, sentiment, sexiness and surprise. JA

The Other Cinderella, Black Ensemble Theater, through Jan. 6. Jackie Taylor's musical reimagining of the poor-girl-makes-good fairy tale is hip enough for adults but still family-friendly, and you won't find an old-school blonde-Barbie princess or cuddly rodent in it anywhere. MSB

War Horse, Cadillac Palace Theatre, through Jan. 5. The brilliant stagecraft of this international hit drama is a must-see. And don't be surprised if you find yourself moved to tears as you follow the often horrific experiences of a young man and his beloved horse during World War I. SCM

—By Abarbanel, Barnidge

and Morgan
