9780062234940: The Book of Mormon: The Testament of a Broadway Musical

"The best musical of this century. Heaven on Broadway. The Book of Mormon achieves something like a miracle."
—Ben Brantley, New York Times

"A crowning achievement. A huge smash success. So good it makes me angry.—Jon Stewart, The Daily Show

The biggest Broadway hit in decades—the brilliant brainchild of South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez—The Book of Mormon is delighting theatergoers nightly with its outrageous irreverent humor and surprising heart. Cleverly designed in the same fun spirit as the show, this official, full-color illustrated coffee table book takes readers behind the scenes with stories from the cast, creators, and crew. Included are the complete book and lyrics to the smash hit Broadway musical, extensively annotated, plus an original introduction by theater critic and author author Steven Suskin about the creation of the show that Rolling Stone declares "is on its march into legend."

From the Back Cover:

Hello. I would like to share with you the most amazing book.

In celebration of the making of The Book of Mormon, the authors, production team, and entire original cast recount their experiences as they grew their show from the initial idea to opening night on Broadway. With the complete book and lyrics annotated by the full creative team and cast, along with more than 700 photographs and illustrations, they share the journey that began one night in a Manhattan bar and culminated seven years later in the achievement that is The Book of Mormon.

About the Author:

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, met Bobby Lopez, the co-creator of Avenue Q, in 2003. That meeting inspired them to create a musical comedy that the New York Times would one day call "the best musical of this century."
