The Book of Mormon In Austin

Updated: Friday, September 27 2013, 03:58 PM CDT

The Book of Mormon is from the creators of South Park. It's the winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, Best Direction, Best Featured Actress, Best Scenic Design, Best Lighting Design, Best Sound Design, and Best Orchestrations, among many other awards.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone grew up in Colorado and were always fascinated Mormonism. During the summer of 2003, they met Robert Lopez, a composer and lyricist of Avenue Q and after talks, the religious satire musical came to life creating the book, lyrics, and music.

In The Book of Mormon, Elder Kevin Price is a devoted Mormon who attends The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah. Trying to become a missionary, he gets a bunch of his classmates to go door-to-door in an attempt to convert people to Mormonism. He ends up getting paired with Elder Arnold Cunningham, who is an overweight geek that lies through his teeth and hasn't even read The Book of Mormon. They end up getting sent to a remote village in northern Uganda. Upon their arrival, they get robbed and then have to live in famine and poverty. After being ruled by a chieftain obsessed with female circumcision and thrown in the mix with District Leader, Elder McKinley, who is dealing with repressed homosexual thoughts, hilarity ensues!
