The Book of "Moron"

Excellent! And while the musical was absolutely  hilarious - a lot of spontaneous, rude, obnoxious "South Park" humor in it - the funniest part was watching the old, traditional theater people leaving the theatre.  Most of the them "seemed" to like it, but were a bit bewildered. The musical subtly points out the hypocrisies of religion, and especially the Moron religion.

I thought "Spring Awaking" was radical for a Broadway musical, albeit a bit old school. "The Book of Mormon" is definitely new school. If more broadway musicals were like this, and less like Disney or traditional musicals, I'd attend more shows.
