'The Book of Mormon' Gets Rousing Reception in Utah

The biting satirical musical that mocks Mormons has finally come to the heart of Mormonlandia, starting a sold-out, two-week run Tuesday at a Salt Lake City theater two blocks from the church's flagship temple and headquarters.
The Tony Award-winning "The Book of Mormon" has earned rave reviews while appalling some with its crudeness. But this marks the first time the show's gleefully naive missionaries have come to Utah, where about two-thirds of residents are estimated to be Mormon.
The show's creators, Trey Parker and Matt Stone of "South Park" fame, told The Associated Press that bringing the show to Salt Lake City feels like validation and also brings the creative process full circle.
