Tony Awards: 'Book of Mormon' Satellite Radio Channel Launching Saturday
Content from Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Tony-nominated play will be featured on two-day channel.
A satellite station dedicated to Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Book of Mormon launches Saturday on Sirius XM.
"The Book of Mormon Radio" will feature interviews with the show's creative team, as well as selections from the cast recording from Ghostlight Records, which was released June 7.
Mormon has 14 Tony nominations going into Sunday's Tony Awards, including mentions for best musical, score, book, lead actors Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells, featured actor Rory O’Malley and featured actress Nikki M. James. Co-directors Parker and Casey Nicholaw were nominated, with Nicholaw also a contender for choreography. That haul makes the gleefully profane buddy comedy about two mismatched missionaries assigned to Uganda the show to beat for Broadway’s top honor this year.
Co-written by South Park creators Parker and Stone with Robert Lopez (Avenue Q), Mormon has been playing to capacity houses since it opened March 24.
The limited-run channel will air on Sirius XM channel 104 beginning at 6am ET on June 11 through June 12 at 11:59pm ET.
