BWW Review: TREY PARKER'S CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL presented by HalfMad Theatre at Capital FringeBWW Review: TREY PARKER'S CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL presented by HalfMad Theatre at Capital Fringe
by Elliot Lanes - Jul 21, 2017

A couple of things intrigued me about HalfMad Theatre's entry into this year's Capital Fringe. First off, the name Trey Parker was attached to it. After all, he created the totally non-politically correct TV show South Park and the mega- hit Broadway musical The Book of Mormon so it seemed interesting that a company would present the piece that started Parker on his meteoric rise to fame while in college. Second, the show is primarily performed with puppets with a few human characters. That just seemed like my kind of show. The show is the wonderful and slightly off-color extravaganza, Trey Parker's Cannibal the Musical! (more...)

BWW Review: THE BOOK OF MORMON Offers an Irreverent and Hysterical Musical Comedy About Mismatched Missionaries Sent to UgandaBWW Review: THE BOOK OF MORMON Offers an Irreverent and Hysterical Musical Comedy About Mismatched Missionaries Sent to Uganda
by Shari Barrett - Jun 1, 2017

THE BOOK OF MORMON, the nine-time Tony AwardŽ-winning Best Musical, is an incredibly irreverent and hysterical musical comedy about two young Mormon missionaries who travel to Africa to preach and recruit new members to their faith. First staged in 2011, no one is safe from parody as the play satirizes various Mormon (as well as many other religious) beliefs and practices, as well as many well-known public figures. With book, lyrics, and music written by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, best known for creating the animated comedy South Park, the two co-created the music with Robert Lopez, the co-composer/co-lyricist of Avenue Q and Frozen.
