Sure, New York City might have the biggest New Year's celebration, but no place can rival Oklahoma City when it comes to a party. Opening Night draws thousands of Oklahomans to Bricktown to ring in a brand new year. Revelers can grab hearty food and drink from one of the area's famous restaurants and breweries, or just mingle among the throngs and enjoy the midnight fireworks display. This event is designed to be family-friendly, and even with the large number of attendees, the environment is casual and peaceful.
Celebrated as one of the funniest musicals to grace Broadway in recent years, The Book of Mormon is a religious satire musical written by the Trey Park and Matt Stone, the creators of the famed animated South Park television series (1997-). The story follows two mismatched Mormon missionaries as they haphazardly attempt to bring Mormonism to the tribal peoples of Uganda, with hilarious and often enlightening results. The musical opened in 2011 and almost immediately gained the acclaim of critics and audiences who felt that The Book of Mormon achieves the trifecta of great music, plot and choreography that is found in all Broadway classics.
