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
Reviews & Ratings
A “Toyer” is one who plays with another, as in a cat with a mouse. But who is playing with whom, and what are the stakes?
Playwright McKay published a novella based on his play in 1999, to which critics such as author Dominick Dunne responded: “Gardner McKay’s brilliantly intricate novel, Toyer, is frightening, fascinating, and wonderfully well written. There were times reading it when I had to put it down to collect myself before picking it up again.” James Cameron said, “Gardner McKay has woven a chilling and disturbing descent into the catacomb of the mind.”
Toyer is about our vast ability to manipulate one another. It is about the awful power of charisma. It is about our immediate power to forgive, and our need to move on. It is about our dreadful crimes; not that they happen, but that we know about them and turn the page. Given the physical intimacy of the Sidewalk Studio space, patrons will be sure to check their deadbolts when they return home.
