From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park comes this outrageously funny and risque Broadway musical about a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that's about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get. Starring BOM veteran Gavin Creel as Elder Price, fresh from his London stint in the same role, be prepared for a show where no holds are barred and perhaps cover yourself with a napkin as you'll be spluttering in comic awesomeness throughout.

With songs and material continually updated to take advantage of the top news stories, composer-lyricist Drama Desk Nominee Rick Crom's topical musical comedy is an ever-evolving mockery of all the news that is fit to spoof - and then some.
