BOOK OF MORMON


I AM GOING TO SEE THIS BROADWAY SHOW FOR A SECOND TIME AND I MUST SAY IT IS VERY WELL DONE! THAT SAID WHEN IT PREMIERED IN 2011 IT WAS IN MY OPINION A SHOT ACROSS THE BOW OF MITT ROMNEY’S PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN. ROMNEY WHO IS MORMON WOULD RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2012. BETWEEN MOVIES, TV SHOWS AND BROADWAY THE DEMMY’S HAVE A HUGE PR ADVANTAGE.

THE FACT IS YOU WOULD NEVER HAVE SEEN A MUSICAL COMEDY ABOUT ROMAN CATHOLICS LEADING UP TO JFK’S ELECTION IN 1960. GROWING UP CATHOLIC IN THE 60’S I AUDITIONED TO BECOME AN ALTER BOY. BROTHER SEBASTIAN CALLED US ONE AT A TIME INTO A PRIVATE ROOM WHERE HE WAVED HIS HAND AT MY PRIVATE PARTS AND ASKED ME IF EVERYTHING WAS OKAY DOWN THERE!

I CAN SEE A BROADWAY CHORUS LINE OF CATHOLIC MONKS SINGING:

IS EVERYTHING OKAY DOWN THERE?

DO YOU HAVE ANY HAIR DOWN THERE?

COULD I SEE YOUR PAIR DOWN THERE?

CAN I TOUCH YOUR REAR DOWN THERE?

AND THAT IS ALL I AM GOING TO SAY ABOUT THAT!
