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

Rather than "A Bittersweet Black Comedy," a more appropriate description would be "A Cacophonous Assault on the Senses." Shelly Hacco's portrayal of Janice was perhaps the shrillest, most ear-splitting performance in the history of American Theater. My friend who accompanied me to the show summed it up best describing the whole experience as "a punishment."
Quotes & Highlights
“It was the best play I’ve seen in Los Angeles.” —LA Splash
“Certainly an original piece of work … an inventive mix of humor, creepiness and the bizarre … something truly different. The set design by Danny Cistone is fascinatingly askew with clever trap-doors, an innovative multi-level stage and details that reveal the characters’ inner turmoil. It’s one of the best designs I’ve seen in a long time. " —Frontiers in LA
“Crumble is a coming-of-age story about the power of love: love for a celebrity, love for your family, love for your home and love for your own life…Though it’s a bit kooky, the compelling mother-daughter-apartment relationship will keep you on the edge of your seat.” –-Daily Trojan
“Theatre 68 and director Ronnie Marmo have done an exceptional job at presenting a production that forces its audience to think, to experience, and yes, to understand … loss. This was not an easy production to direct, I am certain, and Marmo has done so beautifully.” —California Theatre Critic
“Director Ronnie Marmo keeps the action nicely choreographed over Danny Cistone’s sprawling set.” —Stage Mage
“Crumble shows the worst of what grief can do to an already dysfunctional family … quite stunning … an amazing dreamscape.” —LA Theatre Critic
