The Book Of Mormon
January 15th-20th, 2019
This musical comedy spoof has been around for a while and makes it way back to the Hobby Center here in Houston.
Did you know? According to Scott L. Miley of the The Herald Bulletin in Anderson, IN, the LDS church routinely buys ad space in the Playbill's program distributed at performances of "The Book of Mormon,". We guess even they find this farce with muchhumility---funny.
The Book of Mormon follows two Mormon missionaries as they attempt to preach the Mormon religion to the inhabitants of a remote Ugandan village. The earnest young men are challenged by the lack of interest of the locals, who are preoccupied with more pressing troubles such as AIDS, famine, and oppression from local warlords.
The script, lyrics, and music are by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. Parker and Stone were best known for creating the animated comedy South Park; Lopez had co-written the music for the musical Avenue Q. During the development of the project, for research, the trio took a trip to Salt Lake City to meet with current and former Mormon missionaries.
