February 12th, 2012 | By Staff

The original cast recording of The Book of Mormon won the 2012 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theatre Album, beating out the recordings of current Broadway revivals of Anything Goes and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.

The album's win is credited to composers/lyricists/producers Trey Parker, Matt Stone and Robert Lopez, producers Anne Garefino, Stephen Oremus and Scott Rudin and principal soloists Josh Gad and Andrew Rannells.

Leap of Faith and Sister Act composers Alan Menken and Glenn Slater also took home a Grammy for Best Song Written for Visual Media for Tangled's "I See the Light." 

Co-directed by Parker and Casey Nicholaw, The Book of Mormon opened at Broadway's Eugene O'Neill Theatre on March 24, 2011. The show earned nine Tony Awards including Best Musical. In addition to Gad and Rannells, the musical also stars Nikki M. James, Rory O'Malley and Michael Potts.
