When the Broadway play Chicago was adapted into the Academy Award-winning Best Picture in 2002, Latter-day Saints couldn't help but notice the Mormon reference during the "Cell Block Tango." Like many LDS references, it wasn't accurate in its reference to polygamy, a practice which ended in the 19th century. Yet, it is unexpected to hear Mormons mentioned while murderesses confess their crimes through song.

Here's a portion of the song below:

"I met Ezekiel Young from Salt Lake City about two years ago and he told me he was single and we hit it off right away. So, we started living together. He'd go to work; he'd come home; I'd mix him a drink; we'd have dinner. Well, it was like heaven in two-and-a-half rooms. And then I found out. 'Single,' he told me? . . . Not only was he married, oh, no, he had six wives. One of those Mormons, you know. So that night, when he came home, I mixed him his drink as usual. You know, some guys just can't hold their arsenic."
