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. 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

Phenomenal piece that touches on science, literature, and what we do it all for. Brilliant and witty dialogue. Wonderful, very intimate theatre atmosphere and excellently realized characters.
A must see. (Especially for the academic crowd, but all 5 people I went with, from diverse backgrounds, thought it was glorious.)
Tom Stoppard’s Arcadia examines the universe’s influence in our lives; it blurs edges between past and present, science and art, order and disorder, and the certainty of knowledge. Set in an English country house in both 1809-1812 and present day, the play concerns the discoveries of two modern scholars — and the fates of those who lived in the estate and its gardens over 200 years earlier.
Innovative theatre-in-the-round staging, in which the audience surrounds the actors on the Wimberly stage, brings the spectator very close to the action of the play and makes for an exciting and thought-provoking experience of this contemporary masterpiece. _ Arcadia_ is the first offering in Bad Habit Productions’ Fifth Anniversary Season and is directed by Artistic Director Daniel Morris.
