"The Book of Mormon"

NPR reviews and makes available the complete audio of The Book of Mormon, the Broadway musical written by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone.

Much has been made of the essential sweetness of The Book of Mormon, and that's how it strikes me; the show cocks a skeptical eye at situations and belief systems, but its jibes aren't malicious, and it never mocks the value of faith. It also loves its characters — which means, regardless of how unlikely it may seem, that a wide range of audiences will, too.
