"The Book of Mormon" musical headed for Broadway
« on: November 19, 2010, 11:00:16 pm »

The Book of Mormon, a new musical collaboration between South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q composer Robert Lopez, will premiere on Broadway in March 2011. The new show will be directed by Jason Moore and Parker and produced by Scott Rudin and Anne Garefino. Theater, casting and additional creative team members will be announced at a later date.

The press announcement of the new show gave no details about its storyline, but the New York Post reports that The Book of Mormon centers on two young Mormon missionaries sent off to spread the word in a dangerous part of Uganda. Their tale is told alongside the story of Joseph Smith, founder of the Church of Latter-day Saints.
