Holla, “South Park” fans. “The Book of Mormon” is strutting its irreverent self to Columbus as part of the Fifth Third Bank Broadway in Columbus' 2013-14 season.

“South Park” masterminds, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez, the co-creator of “Avenue Q,” created The Tony Award-winning musical that has surprised critics and enthralled a whole new batch of theater fans. To give the unaware an idea, musical numbers include titles such as “You and Me (But Mostly Me)” and “Spooky Mormon Hell Dream.”

People who want to see “The Book of Mormon” can secure seats to a bound-to-be-popular performance by subscribing to Broadway in Columbus’ current season (upcoming performances include “Beauty and the Beast,” “White Christmas the Musical,” “American Idiot the Musical,” and “War Horse).

Subscriptions start at $134. Purchase here or in person at CAPA’s new, hyper-efficient Ticket Center (picture below) at Ohio Theatre’s former gift shop space.
