The Book of Mormon (Explicit)

by Various Artists
The Book of Mormon by Various Artists
Released: May 2011
Label: Ghostlight Records
Nominated for 14 Tony Awards in 2011, The Book of Mormon is the work of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, plus Avenue Q co-writer Robert Lopez. Lead character Price is the model Mormon: "I'll do something incredible that blows God's freakin' mind." With fellow missionary Cunningham, he sets off to Uganda, where they learn the meaning of "Hasa Diga Eebowai" ("F*ck You, God") and tackle subjects from AIDS to homosexuality to maggots, with sunny Broadway bravado. As expected of Parker and Stone, nothing is off limits, yet it doesn't come off demeaning, just enlightening.
