Everybody has hard choices to make about how they’re going to spend their weekend. Some choices are harder than others. This week’s showdown: A Smith Center coup vs. hip-hop with harmony. FIGHT!
|Book of Mormon||Bone Thugs-n-Harmony|
|What:||The sharpest satire you can find on stage.||A group where everyone adopted the surname “Bone.” Like the Ramones, but for hip-hop.||Advantage: Book.|
|When/where:||Smith Center, through July 6.||Hard Rock Cafe, Friday.||Advantage: Book.|
|The masterminds:||South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone||Krayzie Bone.||Advantage: Book.|
|Pride of:||Salt Lake City.||Cleveland.||Advantage: Bone. Cleveland’s been through enough without having to lose to Salt Lake, too.|
|The one thing you definitely know:||Fairly offensive to Mormons.||“Tha Crossroads.”||Advantage: Book.|
|Made its bones off of dead people:||Joseph Smith, et al.||Eazy-E.||Advantage: Bone.|
