The Book of Mormon (Original Broadway Cast Recording)
"Oh boy! Like Lion King!" exclaims Elder Arnold Cunningham upon learning he's going on a mission to Uganda in this loving homage to classic musical comedies, created by Trey Parker, Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez. "Circle of Life" gets the most blatant parodic treatment in Mormon (as the hilariously profane "Hasa Diga Eebowai"). The musical also tips its hat to The Sound of Music, Bye Bye Birdie, and Godspell. They'll have you at "Hello!," which, like everything else here, proves that sacrilege is a dish best served tunefully.
