Mormons To Be Bashed Again... Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum

Sticking with their vocation to offend everybody as often as possible, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, (creators of South Park), will be staging a Broadway musical based on the lives of members of the Church of the Latter Day Saints.

Cheyenne Jackson, (9/11 victim from United 93 or Danny from 30 Rock), an especially gay Broadway superstar is set to play the lead role, a Mormon missionary, in the show aptly titled Mormon Musical.

Stone and Parker will also be working alongside Robert Lopez, who wrote Avenue Q, the award-winning musical that dismantled the divinity of the educational children’s television standard, Sesame Street.

While the crew is making every effort to keep the details of this project “under wraps,” it is a given that it will infuriate the Mormons as the South Park team has done to countless other groups in the past few years: Blacks, Canadians, Catholics, Homosexuals, Jews, Scientologists, Old People, and of course… Mormons. The musical is slated to release off-Broadway in August of this year.
