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

Very good play. Highly recommended!! Don't be put of by the fact it is 3 hours long.It is well worth it and there is not a bad seat in the theatre. Even if you do not know the history of Zimbabwe, there is enough info available in the lobby to get you up to date. It is not only about the history of Southern Africa but it also explains why it is the way it is today.
Very compelling story and a real tour de force for the actors. Excellent!!
I also loved the fact that some lines are in Shona language.

So grateful I chose to see this play! I haven't been that moved and inspired in a while at the theatre. Danai Gurira is a poet. She definitely has a REASON to write and it comes through brilliantly - And the acting is absolutely superb.
