'South Park' creators making 'Mormon Musical'



Tbdcheyennejackson111908 South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker are setting their ridicule reticles on Mormonism, with a new musical comedy about the faith. No, really -- it's slated for a 2009 Broadway release, the New York Post says.

Mormon Musical, which was co-written by Avenue Q creator Robert Lopez, will start rehearsals next month and star Xanadu's Cheyenne Jackson (pictured), who called the show "hilarious -- very acerbic and biting." We weren't exactly expecting a family show.

"It offends everybody but does what South Park does best, which is by the end it comes around and has something great to say," Jackson says. Time to check if any of their South Park voice cast are Mormons, lest they quit a la Isaac Hayes.
