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

Quotes & Highlights
- "Inspired by '60s sex farces and ribald vaudeville skits... you're in for a wacky night, punctuated by Troy's snappy one-liners, Moses' breezy staging, and Del Monte's lecherous leer and Yiddish kvetching." --<em>L.A.Weekly</em>
- "...the excellent cast perfectly nails the zany tempo. They make it look easy, and it's not.... A tight script and fine direction further craft this wacky comedy into a whole carnival of fun." --<em>Tolucan Times</em>
- "Audiences who endorsed <em>Tsuris, </em>playwright Mark Troy's previous hit at the Sidewalk Studio Theatre in Toluca Lake, may go gaga for his latest offering, <em>Paging Dr. Chutzpah</em>. This lewd and lunatic study of a predatory Park Avenue shrink drop-kicks the Catskills style into a place somewhere between Woody Allen and Hooters. " -- <em>Los Angeles Times</em>
