'hello! my name is elder howard'

"And I would like to share with you the most amazing musical..."

OK, I'm loosely borrowing from the opening song ("Hello!") of the musical The Book of Mormon, which opened on Broadway in 2011 and which I finally saw in a touring production here in Minneapolis last night.  What a funny, totally irreverent show, over-the-top but right-on.  Not only does it make fun of Mormonism, it in effect skewers all religion by showing that it takes a bunch of shenanigans sometimes to get followers.  Highly recommended.  I'd see it again.

You might get a kick out of reading the lyrics to one of the better songs from Book of Mormon, "I Believe."  Click here for the lyrics to "I Believe"
