It may be several years before Utah gets a look at Broadway's hit The Book of Mormon musical. But that doesn't mean you need to go to New York to hear the tunes. ---
The original cast recording for The Book of Mormon--the critically acclaimed and multi-Tony-award-nominated tale of two missionaries in Africa--is now available, showcasing the 16 original songs by Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez. And thanks to the NPR Website, you can listen to them all right now, for free.
It won't come as any surprise to fans of South Park that these guys know how to write infectious, irreverent songs. From the bouncy opening number "Hello!" to the missionary companion bro-mantic lullaby "I Am Here for You" to the hilariously earnest testimony of "I Believe," it's an all-killer/no-filler collection. That wait for the show just got a little bit harder.
