30 Musicals in 30 Days: A Funny Musical

Post a song from a musical that makes you laugh.

The Book of Mormon (with book, music and lyrics credited equally to book, lyrics, and music by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone) has one of the funniest scores I have heard in a while and, when I saw it, a great deal of the show had me in tears I was laughing so hard. Yes, the book loses a momentum it never regains towards the end of the first act, with the characterful dialogue that knits the first third or so of the show together so tightly sometimes giving way to the most basic of links and song setups. Yes, the show struggles to juggle the narratives of its dual protagonists structurally. But the score is a hoot and it makes me laugh – a lot.
