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

Bits and pieces of Twyla Tharps's original choreographic style were recognizable beneath the repetitive and commercialized dance moves. Unfortunately, just not enough to make this performance unique. The dancers all excelled at what they were given to do. Seats were good.
Quotes & Highlights
- "A dangerously gorgeous dance adventure." --<em>Newsday</em>
- "Delivers the purest jolt of pleasure to be found on a Broadway stage." --<em>Time </em>
- “Spectacular and dazzling. This is a major new work. Twyla Tharp’s electrifying celebration of the music of Frank Sinatra will sweep you up in a complete spell." --<em>The New York Times </em>
Come Fly Away follows four couples as they fall in and out of love during one song and dance filled evening at a crowded nightclub. Blending the legendary vocals of Frank Sinatra with a live on-stage big band and 14 of the world’s finest dancers, Come Fly Away weaves an unparalleled hit parade of classics, including “Fly Me to the Moon,” “My Way,” and “That’s Life,” into a soaring musical fantasy of romance and seduction.
The show’s score combines classic and newly discovered vocal performances from the Sinatra archives, along with Sinatra’s signature arrangements by Nelson Riddle, Billy May and Quincy Jones, among others, and brand new charts, for this fresh innovative musical.
