This weekend South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone will be launching a limited-run channel on SiriusXM satellite radio to support their critically acclaimed Broadway musical The Book of Mormon.
The Book of Mormon Radio channel will feature interviews with the show’s cast, creative team and of course, songs from the cast recording. It will air on channel 104.
It’s a perfect time for the show to do some last minute promo as it’s launching the day before this Sunday’s Tony Awards; the show is nominated for 14 of them, including Best Musical.
The production has already snagged awards from the New York Drama Critics Circle (Award for Best Musical), five Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, Best Music (Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, Matt Stone), Best Lyrics (Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, Matt Stone), Best Director (Casey Nicholaw, Trey Parker) and Best Orchestrations (Larry Hochman, Stephen Oremus), four Outer Critics Circle Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score (Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, Matt Stone), Best Actor in a Musical (Josh Gad) and Best Director (Casey Nicholaw, Trey Parker) and the Drama League Award for Best Musical.
