    The Mormon episode of South Park was one of their best/funniest, but will they really get away with a musical comedy mocking Mormonism on Broadway?

    They had puppets screwing on stage in Avenue Q. Broadway isn't as button downed as you may think.

    I've always wanted to see Scott Tenorman Must Die performed by real actors.

    I would think saving the world in ImaginationLand might be a good Broadway show.

    Especially the scenes where Cartman tries to make Kyle suck his balls.

    They already did Helen Keller: The Musical and they've done several shows with quite a few songs, like the Christmas episode.

    Hell, I have at least three CDs filled with songs written by Trey Parker.

    Oh, I'm pretty familiar with Broadway.

    When I was at CO, we were the "Official Airline of Broadway" and I managed that relationship. And my parents always took us to a show each year, so I've long been a fan.

    I'm just wondering how upset Mormons will be and how much of a stink they'll make.

    Plus, not every Broadway Musical that is conceived makes it all the way to production.

    And in other Broadway news, since I know you're a fan, I saw both Million Dollar Quartet and The Adams Family in Chicago.

    Both recently opened on Broadway.

    If you liked Jersey Boys, you'll love Quartet. It's a lot of fun. It got a pretty good review in the Times.

    Adams got poor reviews in Chicago, and though they made some changes, it was still savaged in the Times. The reviewer said the cast, "tries hard not to look embarrassed."

    But it has Nathan Lane and Bebe Neuwirth (Lane was in it when I saw it, but I saw Newirth's understudy) and, while it's not high theater, it was still fun too. It's also sold a shit load of tickets.

    I loved Jersey Boys - we're putting together a list for our summer visit now. Not sure what we'll see.

    The Mormons raising hell will do wonders for this show. My guess is they're hoping this happens.

    In this day of political correctness I can see how this show will fly.

    Trey and Matt were both on TDS last night and Jon Stewart said it was one of the funniest things he had ever seen.
