The Book of Mormon

Just ask Mountain Dew or any number of energy drink providers and they’ll tell you that South Park’s demographic is one that you want on your team. So when Trey Parker and Matt Stone mobilized their audience to leave the basement and hit the theater for The Book of Mormon, it was almost predetermined that the musical would break sales records. But it was a surprise when the deliciously offensive production swept the critical establishment. After premiering on Broadway in 2011, The Book of Mormon won nine Tonys, including Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical and Best Original Score. (Thankfully, Parker and Stone didn’t drop acid and wear evening gowns to the awards ceremony, as they did at the 1999 Oscars.) Teaming with composer Robert Lopez (the EGOT winner responsible for the Frozen soundtrack), Stone and Parker penned a story about two Mormon missionaries trying to share Joseph Smith’s teachings in Uganda. Elder Kevin Price (Billy Harrigan Tighe) dreams of a deployment in Orlando, while Elder Cunningham (A.J. Holmes) improvises his teaching with Star Wars dogma, having never read Smith’s scriptures.

Chicken-on-a-Stick
Fiesta favorite chicken-on-a-stick is basically the supreme food booth snack from all of Fiesta. San Antonians look forward to eating it all year, and usually commemorate their first chicken-on-a-stick of the season with a selfie. It’s inspired chicken-on-a-stick necklaces, earrings, stickers and more from local designers, and has appeared on menus across SA so folks can get their fix. Thank goodness for that.
