Exciting news for those of us who will never be able to actually see the show on Broadway: Trey Parker and Matt Stone's The Book of Mormon is one of the shows in Broadway Across America's 2012/2013 season. (I am less excited about other offerings, such as Flashdance and Stephen Spielberg's Battle Pony: The Musical.)
This is to all the doubters and deniers out there, the ones who say that heaven on Broadway does not exist, that it’s only some myth our ancestors dreamed up. I am here to report that a newborn, old-fashioned, pleasure-giving musical has arrived at the Eugene O’Neill Theater, the kind our grandparents told us left them walking on air if not on water. So hie thee hence, nonbelievers (and believers too), to “The Book of Mormon,” and feast upon its sweetness.
A feast! I like feasts. That's in a little under a year—Jan 1-6.
