Book of Mormon Wins More Awards

Why would anyone stop at 14 Tony nominations for The Book of Mormon?? They wouldn't!

It's been winning other awards left and right, and now it has another one to add to that list — the Drama League Award!

We didn't have a doubt, but to those who did: Trey Parker and Matt Stone are incredibly talented! They know exactly what they're doing, and they know comedy through and through!

It won that award for best musical just on Friday. We can't wait to see what else it'll garner… and we can't wait to see the musical itself!

Congrats, crew!

Will U be seeing it soon??

It Was Bound To Happen! South Park To Take On The Royal Wedding

south park to take on royal wedding

VERY MINOR SPOILER ALERT: Details about tomorrow night's episode of South Park below!

On tomorrow's episode of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone have decided to take on the royal wedding…only their version will be set in Canada!

The episode is entitled Royal Pudding, and it spoofs Prince William and Kate Middleton's royal wedding, buuuut things don't go quite so smoothly this time around…

Right before she walks down the aisle, the show's version of Kate, who is "aboot to be princess of Canada" gets kidnapped!

Hopefully things work out so Canadian William and Kate can live happily ever after and be together forever…and of course go honeymooning in the Seychelles. LOLz.

Which royal wedding is your favorite? The ACTUAL royal wedding, or do U like the idea of the South Park Canadian royal wedding better? Ha!

Book Of Mormon Is Taking Over Broadway!

book-of-mormon-sold-out-shows-all-week

Good lord! As if this show even needed the 14 nods it received this morning!

Trey Parker and Matt Stone's smash new musical, Book of Mormon, not only CLEANED HOUSE picking up accolades at today's Tony Award nominations annoucement, but also apparently sold out EVERY seat for every show last week - and then some!

According to statistics, the performances averaged out at 102% capacity, which means that there were audience members standing in the back of the theater watching!

We have a feeling that with the nominations, it's only going to become MORE in-demand!

Good lord! We need to see this one!

Congratulations, guys!

We're excited to see how the show continues to do!

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?"

South Park Creators Sued AGAIN For Stealing

Filed under: TV NewsLegal Matters

Sheesh! This is becoming a bad habit.

First, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker were forced to apologize for copying a spoof of the movie Inception from the CollegeHumor website and now they're being sued for ripping off the viral YouTube phenomenon What What (In the Butt).

Producers of the video, Brownmark Films filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Viacom, claiming that the breach was "willful, intentional, and purposeful, in disregard of an indifferent to the rights of Brownmark." The company is seeking a permanent injunction and maximum statutory damages.

The segment is very similar to Samwell's video, but we still think it's just a parody and could be deemed "fair use."

What do U think? Did Matt and Trey use artistic expression or was it copyright infringement?
