Book of Mormon Opens at Benedum (CP’s Tues. 3/26/13)

1) The Book of Mormon, unexpurgated, opens tonight. The guys in white shirts and black ties are here, and nooo, they are not your Blues Brothers. They rock the house with a sermon about the secret power of frogs, a bunch of songs you’ll want to sing in the shower (but not around small children, please), and a happy ending that might even make you, um … think. There are still some seats available for this blockbuster Tony and Grammy award-winning play created by South Park television show originators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, who co-wrote the play Avenue Q. Catch the touring company of The Book of Mormon, through April 7 at the Benedum Center. Various evening and matinée show times. 7:30 p.m.  719 Liberty Ave., Cultural District. (by Mike Vargo)
