THE BOOK OF MORMON, a new original musical comedy from “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q composer and co-creator Robert Lopez, will open on Broadway on Thursday, March 24, 2011 at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre (230 West 49th Street).

Parker and Stone make their Broadway musical writing debut with THE BOOK OF MORMON.

All this mention of their other work, and not one single mention of "Cannibal the musical"? You would think that their Musical that they wrote, and is being played off Broadway would have some sort of Blurb in here.I'm happy that they are finally doing a real Broadway show. Much more deserved than Green day and that stupid "American idiot" Show. And they are working with the Choreographer for "Spamalot"? I can't wait to see it. I know that Matt and Trey are big fans of Monty Python. They must be really excited.
