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

The Method Gun
Written by Kirk Lynn
Directed by Shawn Sides
Created and Performed by Rude Mechs
The Austin, Texas-based collective Rude Mechs takes a wild and inventive look at the cult of acting in The Method Gun_. Presenting themselves as the abandoned disciples of a questionable acting guru, the company attempts to realize their mentor’s vision of a radically reduced production of _A Streetcar Named Desire.
Shifting from the moving, if minimal, Streetcar_ to the methods of a company that is now the sole vessel of an acting technique called “The Approach,” _The Method Gun follows a misfit ensemble as it courageously pursues its craft, touching upon the mechanisms of process and passion, doubt and devotion, in the pursuit of art.
