Hailed as "the best musical of this century" by Ben Brantley of The New York Times and "the funniest musical of all time" by Entertainment Weekly, The Book of Mormon won nine Tony Awards -- including Best Musical -- in its first year on Broadway. Now the national touring production is back at the Pantages for a second round of hilarity. Written by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone along with Robert Lopez, the Tony-winning co-creator of Avenue Q, this musical comedy is a show that The Daily Show's Jon Stewart has called "a crowning achievement. So good it makes me angry." Learn More

It was time to speak up. When award winning playwright and LAUSD teacher, Alan Aymie, was given his second pink slip from the school district that he had worked for since 1998, and later "graded" by the LA Times, he decided it was time to use his writing to provide a voice for teachers.
"Here I was trying to be a good teacher and the person (my son) who I really need to teach I couldn't reach," explains Aymie.
