This rowdy Broadway musical satirizes the innocent quest of two young missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The Book of Mormon.

The Book of Mormon is a musical comedy. First staged in , the play makes light of various Mormon beliefs and practices, but ultimately endorses the positive power of love and service. Parker and Stone were best known for creating the animated comedy South Park ; Lopez had co-written the music for the musical Avenue Q. The Book of Mormon follows two Mormon missionaries as they attempt to preach the Mormon religion to the inhabitants of a remote Ugandan village. The earnest young men are challenged by the lack of interest from the locals, who are distracted by more pressing issues such as AIDS , famine and oppression from the village warlords. In , after Parker and Stone saw Avenue Q , they met with the musical's co-writer Lopez and began developing the musical, meeting sporadically for several years. For research, the trio took a trip to Salt Lake City to meet with current and former Mormon missionaries. Beginning in , developmental workshops were staged. The show opened on Broadway in March , after nearly seven years of development. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints responded indifferently; however, they did download advertising space in its playbill in later runs. The Book of Mormon garnered overwhelmingly positive critical responses, and set records in ticket sales for the Eugene O'Neill Theatre.

A couple of weeks ago a review about the musical appeared in the New York Times from a Jewish writer who simply listed himself as Levi.

Shame on you, New York Times , shame on Broadway, and shame on all of us who stand idly by and do nothing while the faith of others is mocked. Religious and cultural Jews need not support such bigotry. In my opinion, three reasons. In the great sweep of history, parodies and TV dramas are blips on the radar screen that come and go.

Popular culture will be whatever it will be. The second reason is related. There were times, to be sure, when Jesus roundly criticized others, but it was almost always for hardened hypocrisy.

He dismissed the criticism he received personally and told his followers: Sure, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints pushes back when the record needs correcting or when legal rights need defending, but the world of popular entertainment is more likely to be met with a collective shrug than by placard-waving Mormon protesters.

Meanwhile, what of those thousands of remarkable and selfless Mormon missionaries who opted to pay their own expenses during the past seven years to serve in Africa while their peers were focused on careers or getting on with life?

The Book of Mormon

They have returned home bringing with them a connection with the African people that will last a lifetime.

Many will keep up their Swahili language or their Igbo dialect. They will keep in their bedrooms the flags of the nations where they served.

They will look up every time they hear Africa mentioned on the evening news. Their associations with the people whose lives they touched will become lifetime friendships. And in a hundred ways they will become unofficial ambassadors for the nations they served.
