South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone cleaned up at the Tony Awards last night. Their musical, The Book Of Mormon, won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The show follows two Mormon missionaries sent to Uganda, only to find their faith tested by the terrible conditions they encounter.
