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

The touring production has been rewritten from the Broadway version and is a cleaner, more focused show. That said, it's not a knockout. There are several funny and enjoyable moments but the music is not memorable. Also, some of the effects are diminished if you sit too close to the stage. Probably best to stay at least five rows back.
The weird and wonderful family comes to devilishly delightful life in The Addams Family. This magnificently macabre new musical comedy is created by Jersey Boys authors Marshall Brickman and Rick Elice, Drama Desk-winning composer-lyricist Andrew Lippa (The Wild Party_), choreographer Sergio Trujillo (Jersey Boys_) and Olivier Award-winning director / designers Phelim McDermott & Julian Crouch (Shockheaded Peter) with production supervision by four-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Zaks.
The Addams Family features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family. A man her parents have never met. And if that weren’t upsetting enough, she confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before — keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.
This show is recommended for those age 7 and older.
The running time is two hours and 30 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.
