The London-based LDS group Soul Saints will perform in Provo Saturday night, bringing its brand of "ghetto-hip-hop-R&B" music, and LDS singer/composer Michael McLean says their music "can't help but make you smile." The group sings LDS Hymns in R&B and hip-hop arrangements, "They're not taking the words or meaning out of its context," said McLean. "But because it's to different music, it has the potential to reach those who can't be reached in any other way."

But reviewer Triplett says the play "doesn't work, primarily because Allen's two story lines . . . never really coalesce."
