From the musical website:
What Is the Story of Book of Mormon?
The Book of Mormon follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to try to convert citizens to the Mormon religion. One missionary, Elder Price, is an enthusiastic go-getter with a strong dedication to his faith, while his partner, Elder Cunningham, is a socially awkward but well meaning nerd whose tendency to embroider the truth soon lands him in trouble. Upon their arrival in Africa, Elders Price and Cunningham learn that in a society plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, a successful mission may not be as easy as they expected.
What Is The Book of Mormon Like?
Composed by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q’s Robert Lopez,The Book of Mormon is an old-style musical with a modern sensibility. This blockbuster show features several big song-and-dance numbers accompanied by some old-fashioned Broadway belting. An equal opportunity offender, the show playfully pokes fun at religion, sexuality, poverty and race, while inspiring an after-the-show discussion of religion in general.
Fellows events are announced via emails from firstname.lastname@example.org. The list is maintained separately from The Welcoming Committee's member list.
If you're already a TWC member, male-identified, and in your (actual) thirties, you'll automatically hear from us (but check that you've updated your profile here). If not, join below to hear about Fellows events.
We want to know where Fellows would like to gather next. Do you know of a fantastic wine bar that might host a gathering? Do you have connections at a men's clothier that might give us a pop-up talk? Let us know.
THE WELCOMING COMMITTEE
The Welcoming Committee (TWC) creates communities of LGBTQs and takes them places beyond the gay bar. It all started in Boston in 2007 with our monthly Guerrilla Queer Bar. Now, TWC is an events and travel company with a volunteer element in 10 cities across the U.S. See TWC's entire Boston events calendar here.
