Some things you just can’t make up. South Park
creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are working with Avenue Q songwriter Robert Lopez to create a new off-Broadway musical. The subject matter is “under wraps”, which means everybody knows what it is. In this case, it’s about the Mormons and likely about the founding of the faith. South Park has already dealt with this topic with a small-scale musical of its own.
When this is finally released, tickets are going to be practically impossible to get. Trey Parker and Matt Stone and a religion-skewering musical are a winning combination. They even already have a song from the Mormon South Park episode called “Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum” (at least that’s what I call it). It wouldn’t be surprising if that catchy tune made it into this musical.
Do you plan on seeing this team’s Mormon musical? Let us know in the comments.
