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

While the play itself was very interesting and dialogue heavy (Sorkin, of course), it was far too ambitious a project for this young community theater to pull off. I was impressed that they chose such a complex play. If you see a production from this group, go in remembering it is very amateurish. But they gave it their all and it's worth supporting a fledging group. The actors were clearly working very hard to do their best, but the director didn't seem to have any real theatrical training which greatly impacted the performers negatively. I've sadly seen high school productions better and more professionally directed. However, it's good to see community theater trying. You should also know that the chairs in the auditorium are old, broken-down, and very uncomfortable, and the venue doesn't seem to have any airconditioning so it was stuffy.
The show is recommended for those ages 14 and older, due to some adult language.
