AUSTIN -- The irreverent Broadway musical that sprang from the twisted minds behind "South Park" is headed to Austin. "The Book of Mormon" takes the stage at the Bass Concert Hall from Oct 1-13.

While the show skewers organized religion in all forms, the profanity-laden production was a hit with audiences and critics. They hailed it as proof that the Broadway musical comedy is alive and well. The Washington Post writes: "Don’t believe what they say. Money can buy happiness. It’s yours for the price of a ticket to 'The Book of Mormon.' And if you’re already in possession of one, then you’ve wisely secured a seat in the premier-class cabin of delirium."

"The Book of Mormon" won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Score, Book, and Direction. The story, music and lyrics are by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. Parker and Stone created the long-running animated series, “South Park.” Tony Award-winner Lopez is co-creator of the musical "Avenue Q."
