We are the Lloru (aka another semi-evolved Poetry Bit)

Exhalation: An Existential Stream of Consciousness

The Book of Mormon shocks with both humor and heart

When entering Miller Auditorium, one might not anticipate the joint presence of Jesus and Darth Vader in a critically acclaimed Broadway musical. One may hope, upon reading “explicit language” warnings atop the tickets, that Grandma forgot her hearing aides. And rightly so, as the performance has its fair share of profanity, vulgarity, and sacrilege. Yet, … Continue reading The Book of Mormon shocks with both humor and heart
