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

I really wanted to like this play but unfortunately it was really boring and the acting was mediocre at best with the exception of the brunette lead. It's also very inside so I don't think it would appeal to people working outside of the industry.
Modern Love marks the third play by Anthony Mora to premiere at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre. The play, a dark comedy, about film, sex, power and the dividing line between art and reality, follows one of Hollywood's most successful blockbuster producers, whose obsession with his directorial debut takes him down a dark, precarious path.
Mora serves as the playwright-in-residence at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre. In 2006, the theater premiered two plays by Anthony, P.O.P. The Principles of Perfection and BANG! A Love Story, which Mora adapted for the stage from his controversial, award winning novel. Scenes from Bang! featuring Linda Cardellini were performed at the Acme Theater in Los Angeles and The American Place Theater in New York.
