If it is better than a couple of years back it must be terrific as we thought it was great then. I hope that they are able to keep the close-in seating and the feeling you were there with friends.

We watched it a few years ago, and it was OUTSTANDING. I am a convert to the LDS Church, and already knew Joseph to be a Prophet, and the Book of Mormon to be true. I still sat there with tears rolling down my face as the actor playing the older Martin Harris witnessed to the little girl that he had seen the Angel and handled the gold plates. It was a moment I will never forget.

After the presentation I came up into the cemetery, and there stood by the grave of a much maligned man. He is remembered for losing the original manuscript, but there is no way the Book of Mormon could have been printed without his selfless donation to pay from the printing. Do we believe Charles Anthon's change of mind, or Harris' account? Martin went to mortgage his farm before even returning home. Not the actions of a man who has been told he was backing a false record. Thank-you Martin. You should be recorded in history in a positive light. If you have not seen the show, I thoroughly recommend it.
