Now available at Middle Eight Music, the 2011 Tony Award Best Musical, The Book Of Mormon!

Book of MormonThe Book of Mormon - 2011 Original Broadway Cast

The biggest hit on Broadway this year and winner of 9 Tony Awards including best musical and best original score!

From Trey Parker and Matt Stone, four-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, and Robert Lopez, Tony Award-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, comes a new Broadway musical called "the funniest show I've ever seen, by far" (Entertainment Weekly) and "so good it makes me angry" (Jon Stewart, The Daily Show).

The Book of Mormon follows a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get.

Starring Josh Gad, Andrew Rannells, Nikki M. James, Rory O'Malley, Michael Potts and Lewis Cleale.

"Given the key contributors that "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone teamed with for their first Broadway outing, one might expect "The Book of Mormon" to show the influences of "Spamalot" and "Avenue Q." As it happens, this raucously funny new show surpasses both of those Tony winners, and handily so: Every song enhances the hilarity, expert staging heightens every gag, and the cast of fresh faces is blissfully good. Broadway hasn't seen anything like it since Mel Brooks came to town with "The Producers," only "Mormon" has better songs." - Steven Suskin, Variety

"Teaming with Robert Lopez, who co-wrote the music and lyrics for Avenue Q, Parker and Stone have created one of the freshest original musicals in recent memory. It has tuneful songs, clever lyrics, winning characters, explosive laughs and disarmingly intimate moments." - David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

"...a newborn, old-fashioned, pleasure-giving musical has arrived at the Eugene O'Neill Theater...The Book of Mormon is utterly fluent in the language of musical entertainment from vaudeville to anthem-laden poperettas like Les Miserables and beyond." - Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"a fiendishly well-crafted, hilariously smart or maybe smartly hilarious song-and-dance extravaganza...The show's a hoot. The show's a hit...a full-blooded tuner that rejuvenates musicals while displaying a genuine love for the form." - Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New York Post

Warning:This CD contains very strong language.
