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

I was generally disappointed in this show, having seen a much smaller, more successful production last year at the Met, which is a 99 seat theatre. I think the director has made serious mistakes by cutting certain numbers to focus mainly on the three major characters (only one number with girls of the night; and then it was much less effective than the original choreography incorporating a lot of strange ropes instead of the banging of the chairs which made the song so much more entetaining in the original version.) The focus is on the two stars, Constanine and Debra Cox. When Constanine plays hte manic Hyde, he's at his best, but it's the same mania over and over again which gets tiresome after a while. The final song where he sings in both characters as a confrontation is done with a prerecorded mirror image which is less effective in the drama of the story and comes off like an acid trip. This production sacrifices the dramatic moments of the story for the sake of showcasing the stars. Debra Cox, also completely lacks dramatic impact, and just deleivers her songs ala diva. The production is entertaining, but truly lacks merit as a dramatic work in this incarnation. Real fans of the show will be disappointed by the choices made by this director.
