NEW YORK – The creators of the cheeky animated TV series ‘South Park‘ are taking aim at Broadway.

Trey Parker and Matt Stone have written a musical comedy called ‘The Book of Mormon’ that will open on Broadway in March 2011. The two wrote the show’s book, music and lyrics, along with Robert Lopez, one of the creators of the Tony-winning ‘Avenue Q.’ The musical will be directed by Parker and Jason Moore, who directed ‘Avenue Q.’

Producers Scott Rudin (ROO’-dihn) and Anne Garefino (gar-uh-FEE’-noh) said Wednesday that a theater, casting and other production details would be announced later.
