Three years is a long time for a peppy musical to stay peppy... But gosh darn it if I didn't feel born again all over again!

BOOK OF MORMON Creators on Show's Utah Debut: 'Feels Like It's Coming Home'

The National Tour of The Book of Mormon will begin its sold-out, two-week run tonight in Salt Lake City, Utah, just a hop, skip and a jump from the Mormon Church's flagship temple and headquarters. The performance will mark the first time that the Tony Award-winning musical, which follows two naive missionaries on their quest to convert the people of a remote African village to Mormonism, has come to Utah.

In a new interview with The Associated Press, the show's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone shared that tonight's opening has brought the show full circle. "It feels like a really cool thing that it finally gets to play Salt Lake City," Stone said. "It just feels very much like it's coming home."

Jokes Parker, "It's like playing 'Fiddler on the Roof' to a bunch of Jews."

While many of the lines in the show lightly poke fun at Mormon beliefs, the creators are not expecting it to cause any major protests among church members. "I think it legitimizes them," Stone said. "You're not really real until somebody makes fun of you and makes a big Broadway show about you. Then you're really, really part of the American fabric."
