‘Book of Mormon’ Is Officially Hollywood’s Favorite Broadway Play

Although it’s still fairly new, The Book of Mormon, a new musical penned by South Park masterminds Trey Parker and Matt Stone, is the place to be seen for Hollywood’s A-listers. In the past two nights alone, the audience has included Cameron Diaz, Steve Martin, and Anna Wintour (who, yes, kept her sunglasses on the entire time). Considering the ink that Vogue’s April issue devoted to Parker and Stone, it wasn’t a huge surprise that Anna herself came out to support the show. Other boldface names spotted in the crowd recently were Whoopi Goldberg, Doris Roberts, Josh Brolin, and Saturday Night Live headmaster Lorne Michaels. Mazel tov, Matt and Trey – when there are bigger stars in the audience than in the show itself, you know you have a hit on your hands. Will a stint hosting SNL be next?
