Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, reality television star and rapper respectively, recently shared a date night to see the "Book of Mormon" on Broadway in New York City.
Kardashian, 31, tweeted about the show exceeding her expectations after watching the play with her boyfriend over the weekend.
"Saw the book of mormon last night! Have you guys seen it," Kardashian asked over 15 million Twitter followers. "It's hysterical! Was so pleasantly surprised!"
Fans also spotted the pair together during the show and took to Twitter to speak about it.
"At The Book of Mormon, Kim Kardashian and Kanye came in late and already left #WhereAreYouYeezy?" one audience member tweeted.
Another person was happy to see the play at the same time as the celebrity couple.
"Haha Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are here," another audience tweeted. "Looks like I picked the right day to see Book of Mormon again."
While neither West or Kardashian have any public associations to Mormonism, both have claimed to follow the story of Jesus Christ in the past. However, the "The Book of Mormon" play is a satirical look at the Mormon faith complete with song and dance.
Still, the nine-time Emmy-Award winning play has been named "Best Musical" with "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone behind the project. The musical received rave reviews from multiple critics, who called the work miraculous.
"The best musical of this century. So impeccably produced on every level, Heaven on Broadway," a New York Times review reads. "The Book of Mormon achieves something like a miracle."
While the Philadelphia Inquirer acknowledged that some may be offended by the show, the publication spoke about audiences being surprised by the musical, much like Kardashian.
"The shocking thing about 'The Book of Mormon' is that after all the production numbers that make searing fun of Mormonism, African culture, AIDS, terror, mainline religion and every Western creation myth – after all of that, the show ends up an unbridled celebration of faith," the Inquirer wrote in a review. "The Book of Mormon is a triumph – that's not too strong a word: For all its outrageous mockery, the show encourages you appreciate whatever creation story gives you comfort and allows you to appropriate mystery."
