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

What a perfect way to learn more about the life of this American legend!
Great music, costumes, choreography and so well executed by an excellent cast. Danny Michaels' performance was incredible. We might even take friends and go back for a second time.
Highly recommend this one!
Also, Kim (Theater House Manager that night) was welcoming and hospitable. She made the experience even more special.
Will Rogers is famous for saying “I never met a man I didn’t like,” and anyone who has ever seen or performed in Will Rogers Follies will agree that there has never been a man-or woman-who did not like it.
Subtitled “A Life In Revue,” Will Rogers Follies stands out among musicals because of the magic of its protagonist. Rare is the man who transcends decades and rises to the level of legend. Will Rogers does this not only because of his accomplishments, but because of his philosophy, which espouses respect and confidence in the goodness of his fellowman.
Will Rogers was a unique American who, though he died almost sixty years ago, remains a beloved figure remembered for his humor, his wisdom, and his just plain common sense. At the heart of his populist philosophy was his most famous statement: “I never met a man I didn’t like.” Rogers became the biggest, most popular, and highest paid star of every existing medium of his time—stage, screen, radio, newspapers, and public appearances. In fact, it is no exaggeration to say that he was the greatest star this country has ever produced.
