The Book of Mormon

When you grow up fascinated, and occasionally repelled, by the Mormon religion and Broadway musicals, what are you going to do but merge those two obsessions into a Tony Award-winning show? And not just one Tony — make that nine, including 2011's Best Musical. That's what Trey Parker and Matt Stone did with the mega-hit The Book of Mormon, opening next week at Playhouse Square. This is the duo that made Southpark the nastiest, most offensively hilarious cartoon show on TV. For Mormon, they teamed up with Avenue Q co-composer and co-lyricist Robert Lopez to fashion this tuneful, comic take on the Church of Latter Day Saints and its ways. The play returns to the State Theatre for a limited engagement tonight at 8. Tickets start at $30 and performances run through Sept. 15. (Christine Howey)
