South Park’ Creators Win Best Musical Tony Award For ‘Book of Mormon’ :

Posted on 22 June 2011 by Christian

The Book of Mormon’ took home nine Tonys Sunday and the night’s biggest crown thanks to a story and song that both poked fun and honored Broadway’s history.

‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone beat out ‘Catch Me If You Can’, ‘The Scottsboro Boys’ and ‘Sister Act’ to win the title for the musical about two Mormon missionaries who find more than they bargain for in Uganda.

The show’s win wasn’t a huge surprise with more than $10 million in sales and 14 Tony nominations.

Chris Rock even joked that opening the envelope to make the announcement was like “buying dinner for a hooker”, but it wasn’t always that way, especially when the musical was being conceived.

“That was the big question: are the grey hairs gonna come and are the South Park people going to come to something they can’t afford?” says Stone. “But I’ve seen some really old people in there laughing their asses off!”

True to the style of ‘South Park’, the script is rife with plenty of four-letter words and controversial lyrics but star Nikki M. James points out: “Any dialogue is better than no dialogue. We’re getting people talking!”
