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

Fabulous one-woman production. Rachel Olgivy had the audience entranced not only by her story but by her wonderful use of Scottish idioms and customs. This is one of those don't-miss-it events for which everyone should line up to buy tickets.

An enchanting one-woman show, written and performed by Rachel Ogilvy
An obsession with a man is one thing. An obsession with the Golden Gate Bridge is another!
For daddy’s girl Rose, the world was all seaside holidays and Kola Kubes… until, one life-changing day, daddy didn’t come home.
Ogilvy’s self-penned solo show tells the poignant tale of Rose, a stressed-out and much-maligned supply teacher with an obsession for the Golden Gate Bridge. The famous landmark and feat of engineering is an appropriate setting for the accomplished actress’s steely storytelling, which enchanted Edinburgh audiences.
The Scots actress, best known for her role as sultry Tiffany in High Road, has been compared to Joyce Grenfell by theatre critics, who gave The Crossing four-star reviews.
