The Book of Mormon to return on Broadway!
“The Book of Mormon” is a musical comedy composed by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone, including music, lyrics and books. The play was first staged in 2011 and satirized the faith and practice of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The musical finally recognized the positive power of love and service.  Parker and Stone are famous for creating the animated comedy “South Park”. Lopez co-wrote the music for the musical “Q Avenue”. The Book of Mormon tells the story of two Latter-day Saint missionaries trying to preach the faith of the church to residents of remote villages in Uganda. Serious young people are challenged by the lack of interest from the locals, who are distracted by more pressing issues such as HIV/AIDS, famine, female genital mutilation, and oppression by local warlords.
