South Park Creators Penning The Book of Mormon, the Musical
Just when you thought Trey Parker and Matt Stone couldn't get any more offensive, they did it. According to TwentyFourBit, Parker and Stone are making a Broadway musical about Mormonism.
"Growing up in Colorado, a lot of our friends were Mormons and we always thought their book would make a great musical... We loved Avenue Q and are having a blast working with [Avenue Q composer) Bobby Lopez. Having a show on Broadway is a dream come true for us."
The musical is set to premiere on Broadway in March of 2011, but there's already a facebook fan page for it, if you're interested.
