Jagged Little Pill

Aptly referred to as ‘God’s Favorite Musical’, "The Book of Mormon" was created by iconic duo, Matt Stone and Trey Parker (“South Park”), along with Robert Lopez (“Frozen”, “Avenue Q”). The story follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to convert local citizens to the Mormon religion. A full-fledged adult musical, the show utilizes satire in the best possible way.
