South Park creators making a Mormon musical

by Brad Trechak, posted Jan 29th 2010 12:05PM
South ParkSome 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.

Okay for everyone who aren't familiar...the move Team America: World Police was also Trey Parker and Matt Stone and I can tell you they definitely blasted muslim terrorists in that movie. These guys have a huge following if nothing else for being consistent. They never have back pedaled or apologized for anything. Their attitude has always been that if you don't like the show/the movie or whatever then don't watch it as it's your choice.

It is amazing how the lies of mormons' founder Joseph Smith can still work in this day and age.
What is good about the church has nothing to do with religion, but common sense.(such as abstaining from drink).
I wish mormons would realize that they have been taken.

The infamous salamander letter, which inspired this comment, was a proven forgery by the mormon bomber/murder, Mark Hoffman, currently incarcerated in the Utah prison system, FOR LIFE.

Heck yeah! I loved the Mormon episode of SP, and I'd pay money to see a full length musical version!

IF they make fun of everyone, why not a movie about islam or muslims... they are a great target, even more fodder for humour. AND if they can't/won't insult the muslims....then they shouldn't make fun of any faith. Fair is Fair.

Just more proof that people in organized religions can't even laugh at themsleves.....the reputation some earn as being humorless is well-deserved. And even more reason why some of us avoid religion and church in general.
