South Park Duo are Broadway Bound

Looks like Broadway is in for a hell of a shock come March 2011 when "The Book of Morman" opens at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre.

If you're not familiar with Trey Parker & Matt Stone then you've been under a rock for the last 10 years.  They're the creator of "South Park" the long running Comedy Central cartoon geared towards an adult audience.

Parker & Stone are not unfamiliar to musicals as their film "South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut" was driven by song.  Even garnered the duo an Academy Award nomination for "Blame Canada", though they didn't win, they definitely made an impact on the uptight ceremony. 

Now they're set to give the Morman religion the musical treatment and The Great White Way may never be the same.  I'm extremely excited to see how this plays out.  I'm sure it will upset many but it will undoubtedly bring in a ton of money next year.

I'm sure the Tony Awards will be a better place when this gets a few nominations, which I'm sure it will.
