‘Book Of Mormon’ To Open

When “South Park” premiered on a fledgling network called Comedy Central in August 1997, it instantly shook up the pop culture landscape, inspiring debates about the decay of moral decency in America and shattering cable ratings records. Few people could have guessed that the show would still be churning out new episodes nearly two decades later; even fewer could have imagined that its creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, would one day be two of the biggest names on Broadway. Parker and Stone’s hugely successful musical “The Book of Mormon” begins a limited run in Spokane on Tuesday as part of the Best of Broadway series, the same week “South Park” premiered 17 years ago. Tremendously popular, critically adored, unapologetically crude and gleefully offensive, “The Book of Mormon” won a whopping nine Tony Awards in 2011/Nathan Weinbender, SR. More here. (SR photo)

Question: Do you plan to see “The Book of Mormon” during its brief Spokane run?
