I am not sure how this relates to Gay Mormondom, but I am posting anyway. Book of Mormon the Musical tickets are available. The show could really stink. However there is a chance that it wont. I wish it well. I wish it really well.

"The Book of Mormon,” will be opening in February at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. It is being created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of “South Park,” “The Book of Mormon” is a musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon missionaries sent to Africa. The show is being written in collaboration with Robert Lopez, the Tony Award-winning writer of “Avenue Q,” and is co-directed by Parker and three-time Tony nominee Casey Nicholaw (“Spamalot,” “The Drowsy Chaperone”).
I hope it jabs us good and causes us to take a good look at ourselves. I also hope that it gives others not of the LDS faith a look at the good we have to offer. All in all I think that the church can withstand publicity.

What I fear is that it will be lame. I don't care that it skewers Mormons, I don't want it to be a missionary tool. I just don't want it to be stupid.

Already inaccurate!  Missionaries don't wear white socks.


  1. I think it could be cool too. Let me know more about topic and songs when you get the info.

  2. As soon as you started listing who was putting on the show, I got chills. Not the good ones.

    While my experience with South Park has been minimal at best (of my own free will, mind you) I happen to know Avenue Q quite well, and let me tell you that they are known for pushing the envelope. They're pretty verbal, liberal, and just... well, entertaining.

    I'm not sure that any good will come of this musical and I'm a little sad that they're doing it.

  3. Just read that this will be funny and successful. And Crass. And CRASS. The only way it will be good for mormons is in the no publicity is bad publicity kind of way. Thanks for the warning


  5. I hear that it is cute and crude. I wont go to see it, but I may buy the soundtrack - if it makes it that far, and I think it will. Disrespect has always had legs.
