Start spreading the news: A 2nd Mormon musical hits New York
Will another show about wacky Latter-day Saints attract the same size New York audiences as the Tony-award winning "Book of Mormon" musical?
Not likely, but creators of "Missionary in Manhattan: A Mormon Musical" seem to be having fun.
The comedy is about "the fundamentals of big hair, blind faith, and just how plural a marriage can get," promoters say, and will play for two nights Thursday, May 8, and Wednesday, May 21 at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, an off-off-Broadway theater in Chelsea.
The 30-minute production, written by the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Brooklyn, tells the story of "three polygamist-pop stars on the hunt for their brother/husband, the father of their seven children who has gone missing in New York City."
The satirical musical, promoters say, "hysterically lampoons the institution of marriage."
