Not since Brigham Young founded the the state of Deseret (later to be renamed "Utah") in the mid-19th Century — with the possible exception of the three-year run of ABC's Donny and Marie television show — has The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints been so ascendant.
First of all, we've got Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman, both Mormons, looking to be top-tier candidates for the Republican presidential nomination. Add to that a Mormon Senate Majority Leader, a Mormon infotainment prophet/rodeo clown dominating conservative airwaves, and Mormon created-and-backed political juggernaut influencing social issue policy nationwide. What more could you ask for as a Mormon?
Performances begin at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York City on February 24, 2011. Tickets are available now!
