The Book of Mormon received 14 Tony nominations

On Tuesday, 'The Book of Mormon' received 14 Tony nominations, making it this year's most nominated show by far. That is just shy of the record 15 nominations 'The Producers' and 'Billy Elliot' landed in 2001 and 2009, respectively.

The irreverent musicals is cooperation between ‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and ‘Avenue Q’ mastermind Robert Lopez and inform the story of two Mormon missionaries send out on a mission to Uganda. As you might think from a team of master satirists, the musical gently pokes fun at prepared religion with songs like 'Spooky Mormon Hell Dream,' 'Making Things up Again' and 'Baptize Me.'

We were fortunate enough to talk to Lopez, who with Parker and Stone nominated for Best Book of Musical and Best Original Score, and Best Featured Actor nominee Rory O'Malley, who plays a closeted gay man in denial in the programmed, at a press event in New York. They inform us all about cooperating with Parker and Stone and what it is like being a part of one of Broadway's biggest shows.
