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

Wonderful show! Lyla performed to a small house like she were performing to a sold-out crowd! Very powerful story! And great comic moments! Definitely give this performer and chance and support Lyla!
You will be glad you did!
Quotes & Highlights
“Wylie establishes himself as a master at milking laughs.” —LA Weekly
“The hype doesn’t even begin to cover this show! Creative, funny, insightful. Lyla is intelligent, witty, and played with such abandon that you cannot help but fall in love with her.” —examiner.com
“There’s a sweetness to this piece that distinguishes it from so many ‘drag’ shows that revel in camp and cattiness. Wylie inhabits this lady of the towering roller-curled red hair with nary a wink about gender—Lyla is all woman and refreshingly positive.” —WSWS.com
Texas Loves Lyla! gets extended, again at Theatre Asylum, after a successful run at the Hollywood Fringe and Best Of. As south Texas’ #1 talk radio queen, Lyla KaRug hits the web, tackling ignorance, adult bullies, and gay teen suicide. Jeffrey Wylie takes an irreverent and bold approach in addressing the reasons why people bully, and what we can each do in helping the victims of this terrible epidemic. Co-produced with Matthew Quinn and Combined Artform.
