Salt Lake Acting Company: Saturday's Voyeur 2012

Newsweek declared a cultural “Mormon moment” in summer 2011, what with the Broadway phenomenon of The Book of Mormon musical and the Mitt Romney presidential campaign. But Allen Nevins and Nancy Borgenicht have been chronicling Utah's perpetual “Mormon moment” for 30 years, and are turning the satirical eye of Saturday's Voyeur on many subjects of local interest that now get national attention.

Of course, the musical revue will touch on plenty of hot-button issues from the past 12 months, from being a Mormon with such non-Mormon affiliations as homosexuality and the Democratic Party to the ongoing power of a certain high-profile busybody in the halls of the Legislature to the opening of City Creek Center. But it's all filtered through the dreams of a rank-and-file Mormon that Obama can be replaced by Romney--assuming the rest of the country can stop wondering about how weird Mormons might be.
