“We actually are very happy to find that Mormons like the show,” Parker said, laughing backstage during Sunday’s ceremonies. “For some, it’s like their ‘Fiddler on the Roof.’ We know when they are there because they laugh at some of the stuff others don’t.”
“Writing comedy songs is hard. As big fans of musicals, we wanted to do a show where the songs really matter,” Parker said. “Writing songs that are plot driven is really hard. It was such a complete collaboration. You’d start with this cute little song and it would become this [big number].”
