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

“When seeing a series of short plays, there’s always the risk of sitting through more bad and ugly than good, but in this case, the majority of the 25 plays and sketches were well-developed and beguiling … (Benjamin) Atkinson laid claim to the standout performances, showing both a deft touch with the physical comedy as well during the evening’s dramatic turns like the heart-tugging 2 Minute Life Story by Jacob Smith.”— LAist.com
“This kind of show is for those that want to see as much theatre one can get away with, or for those that can’t (or won’t) wait around for a climax! … It’s fast, funny and most of all, very original… by the time one is finished laughing (or just getting in to it), it’s time for another play to begin! … In these times where instant gratification has beocme the norm, 25 PPH is for those that love their entertainment short ’n sweet! The world may have been created in a week, but this show uses a whole lot less time and space, and not a minute to spare!”—_Accessibility Live _
