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

Outstanding performance---riveting story, beautifully executed. RGS always delivers first-rate intensely powerful theatre. The piece was at times outrageously funny, at times achingly heartbreaking. I knew nothing of the historical event in advance, and went mainly because of the performer. i found myself immediately immersed in the narrative. JUAN & JOHN is not to be missed. I plan to go back again!
Quotes & Highlights
“Roger Guenveur Smith believes in the interconnectedness of history: that our lives, big and small, are enmeshed in the great tangle of events, big and small.”—Rachel Saltz, The New York Times
_The Watts Towers Project _was a high point of Solomania! at the Douglas in 2006. Smith returns with an equally powerful and poetic work based on the true story of baseball legends Juan Marichal and John Roseboro and the infamous 1965 day when Marichal turned and hit Roseboro in the head with his bat. Smith witnessed the event on television and passionately presents it as part of a greater story that encompasses the Watts riots, Catholicism, the notions of marriage,family and, ultimately, redemption and forgiveness.
