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

Quotes & Highlights
“… beautifully conceived, confidently executed and wholly accessible work, which is not just her finest to date but also the best new play to open Off Broadway this fall.” —The New York Times
A new American comedy every bit as poetic as it is honest and revelatory. This captures forty-something life at its most vulnerable in a narrative that charms, shocks and resonates. There is your first adult life full of hope and promise, and then there is your second adult life when an unexpected twist or turn drastically diverts your course. In This, five friends navigate unforeseen circumstances without a road map. Fortunately, they have the insights and words of Melissa James Gibson, who imbues every conversation with rhythm and grace. In her hands language flows effortlessly with both amazing levity and profound weight, sometimes contained in a single word as simple as “this.”
