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

Quotes & Highlights
- “Hilarious! Must see TV!” --<em>Seattle Times</em>
- “Gardner’s brilliant tour de force” --<em>Backstage </em>(Critics Pick)
Writer-performer Jeff Gardner’s dialogue-free solo comedy with a hilarious and insightful look at the insidious nature of television. It’s often said he who has the remote control has the power. Not in this living room…take a bizarre plunge into the other side of the screen and discover why they call it “Programming.” An exciting hybrid of pop-culture satire, physical theatre and the absurd.
Originally performed at The Seattle Fringe Festival this show received TheatreSeattle.com’s ‘Pick of the Fringe’ honor. In it’s recent run at The 1st Hollywood Fringe Festival it was nominated for Best in Physical Theatre and the Outrageous Award for Theatre. It also won the award for the Most Socially Aware Show.
