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

This is such a fun show! From the minute the lights went off, the audience was laughing out loud non-stop. It seemed as if at any given moment you forgot about the actors presence and truly believe it was the puppets making the jokes; that's how good the cast is! If you're looking to have a great time at the theater, this show is a must see. Such a shame it is such a short run this time around!
One note: To ALL the people I've noticed that tend to start making their way out as soon as the show finishes and before the cast comes back to greet the audience: STOP IT! It is RUDE to the rest of the audience & to the cast of actors that has just entertained you for the past 2.5hrs. The least you can do is show your appreciation for their hard work. Giving them a well-deserved round of applause equals saying Thank You!
Bonus: I ran into half of the cast while on the Metro on my way back home last night. They were all very polite and energetic. Kudos!
