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

World class acting! Didn't realize until it began that I actually saw this play before at a different venue under a completely different cast / production but this performance took it to another level! The set was basic but brilliant, every thing did what it needed to, the photos gave off an eerie Tennessee Williams-ian quality, perfect for this notion of the "memory play." The aunt and eldest daughter were both impeccably acted and the other cast complimented them delightfully without being too obvious or over acted. I actually shed a couple of tears at the end, "but today, I'm just riffing." Shame that it's only a limited showing but catch one if you can! Bravo!

The battle for the heart and mind of 17-year-old Ernestine is waged in a living room in Brooklyn in 1950. The contestants include the lively and glamorous Aunt Lily, Ernestine’s God-fearing father and a mysterious German refugee. As is Ernestine, the country is on the brink of transition. This coming of age tale evokes the poetry of change.
The cast features Mylika Davis, Lara Hughes, Kenyetta Lethridge, Rickie Peete and Marie-Francoise Theodore.
