The Book of Mormon in Broadway THE BOOK OF MORMON
San Diego Civic Theatre
The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical with book, lyrics, and music by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. Best known for creating the animated comedy South Park, Parker and Stone co-created the music with Lopez, who co-wrote and co-composed Avenue Q. The show lampoons organized religion and traditional musical theatre, reflecting the creators' lifelong fascination with Mormonism and musicals. The Book of Mormon tells the story of two young Mormon missionaries sent to a remote village in northern Uganda, where a brutal warlord is threatening the local population. Naive and optimistic, the two missionaries try to share the Book of Mormon, one of their scriptures-which only one of them has read-but have trouble connecting with the locals, who are more worried about war, famine, poverty, and AIDS than about religion.

<a href=Richard Thomas as Tennessee Williams in A Distant Country Called Youth in Broadway" border="0" bheight="100" width="100" align="right"> RICHARD THOMAS AS TENNESSEE WILLIAMS IN A DISTANT COUNTRY CALLED YOUTH
The Old Globe
For one night only, acclaimed stage and screen actor Richard Thomas ("The Americans," "The Waltons") brings to vibrant life one of the giants of American dramatic literature, playwright Tennessee Williams. Spanning Williams's life from his seminal younger years in St. Louis to the successful Broadway opening of The Glass Menagerie more than 20 years later, this illuminating one-man show weaves together his casual love affairs, tormented family relationships, exotic travels, brushes with the rich and famous, and his eventful early career. This was the raw material that Williams fashioned into theatrical masterpieces like A Streetcar Named Desire, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, and Suddenly Last Summer. At turns humorous, poignant, and highly personal, A Distant Country Called Youth reveals Williams as a writer as poetic and passionate in his letters as he was in his masterworks.

Re-Designing Women in Broadway RE-DESIGNING WOMEN
Diversionary Theatre
Plagued by the faltering economy, Atlanta-based Sugarbaker Design Firm is on the brink of collapse when vapid ex-beauty queen Suzanne has an idea to save the business by pitching a reality show to Andy Cohen, the hot-shot producer from the BRAVO network. Soon camera crews are following the antics of the four Southern belles, their ex-con delivery man Anthony, and their daffy family friend Bernice. The producers get more than they bargain for with plenty zany footage of Julia's highly-charged tirades, MaryJo's cocktail-infused, tell-all testimonials, and Charlene's hillbilly, down-home, there's-got-to-be-a-point-to-these-stories. Soon their world is turned upside down with infighting and jealousy as everyone gets a taste of fame and fortune that could ruin their perfect sitcom existence. "Re-Designing Women" does not incorporate actual episodes; rather, Morris puts his original twist, a current, up-t0-date look on the beloved sitcom -which has been off the air from 21 years - with cameos from some of today's hottest reality show stars.
