South Park Creators' Musical Is Coming…This Thursday!

| Filed under: TV NewsBroadway Babies

south park creators mormon musical previews begin this thursday

Broadway is about to get controversial AND HIGHlarious!

Back in September, we were excited to hear that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's religious satire The Book of Mormon was scheduled to premiere on Broadway on March 24.

Now, we're SO excited to announce that previews for the musical about "a pair of teenage Mormon missionaries sent to Uganda, where they confront war, famine and AIDS" will start THIS THURSDAY!

Oddly enough, Matt stone says the musical is pro-faith:

"…I mean, (Mormon) is a pro-faith musical. People may say, 'What?!' But that's what it's meant to be."

More from Stone:

"We can have a lot of fun at the Mormons' expense, because there's stuff in their religion that may seem silly to outsiders. But these are really nice people who believe what they do wholeheartedly. And that leads us to ask, well, what do you believe in, and what's goofy about that?"

Here's a statement that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued with regards to the play:

"The production may attempt to entertain audiences for an evening [but that Mormon scripture] will change people's lives forever."

And here's what Stone had to say in response:

"Those guys just kill us with kindness every time. Their response to our South Park episode (on Smith) was basically the same: 'Look, you're free to do what you want.' It's so big-hearted and fundamentally American."

Ha! Now we're REALLY intrigued by this musical…especially after Matt Stone said it's a "pro-faith musical." Inneresting way to describe a Mormon-themed play by the South Park guys…

Are U excited for this play? Do U think it will, in fact, be "pro-faith?"

    As long as this musical gives an accurate and respectful portrayal of the LDS Church, I say sing, dance, and have a blast at it :)

    Dumb stupid show! So a musical could make it even more of a steaming pile of shit.

    Couldn't care less about this show. I'm sick and tired of Trey Parker's and Matt Stone's continuous attempts to have it both ways by playing both sides of every issue. They're so incredibly impressed with themsleves. IMO they're no longer relevant — if they ever were. Have the balls to take a stance and either come out in support of something, or not.
