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

Wow. What an amazing cast of people. I'm already impressed when people perform musicals that they've rehearsed for months in advance. That leaves me absolutely amazed and enraptured when people perform musicals off the cuff.
The show is very animated, funny, creative...and engaging. Just make sure you get there early before all the good seats run out.
Embracing the spirit of one of the most heralded artists in American theater, the actors and master improvisers of Impro Theatre will create full-length, completely improvised musicals in the style of Stephen Sondheim in Sondheim UnScripted.
Using just their guts, improvisational wits and audience suggestions, the cast invents a brand new, never-before-seen (and never will be seen again) musical for each performance. The only constant is the thrill, joy and humor that are brought together to bring character, plot and songs to life — all to pay tribute to Sondheim by an expert team of funny and gifted actors whose explorations of great literary figures include Shakespeare, Tennessee Williams, Jane Austen and Dickens.
