"You and me, but mostly me, is going to change the world," Kevin Price
The SOUTH PARK/TEAM AMERICA boys have nailed the West End musical. At a fan performance on Monday 25th February, kicking off the London run, Trey Parker (co-director, book, music, lyrics) introduced the creative team:
- Robert Lopez (book, music, lyrics),
- Matt Stone (book, music, lyrics), and
- Casey Nicholaw (co-director and choreographer).
I even got to say congratulations to Messrs Nicholaw and Lopez, who were among the audience. The former was scribbling notes in front of me throughout, and zoomed off immediately at the interval – I guess a perfectionist.
The audience included, at one of the biggest theatreland events of 2013, director Edgar Wright (SPACED, SHAUN OF THE DEAD, SCOTT PILGRIM) and actor Peter Serafinowicz (THE PHANTOM MENACE, LOOK AROUND YOU). The buzz was massive. Some people queued over night for tickets!
THE BOOK OF MORMON is musical satire utterly nailed. Hilarious, coruscating and joyous.
