Running since February 2011 From the creators of "South Park" and "Avenue Q," a bawdy, irreverent, hilarious, and heartfelt new musical about two missionaries sent to deepest, darkest Africa to spread the good word. Winner of 9 Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Those who have seen "South Park" probably won't need any warnings, but....the producers have issued a parental advisory due to explicit language. In our opinion, they need to add adult themes and sexually-explicit humor to their advisory, and clearly state that the show is not suitable for pre-teens.
