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

It really surprised me! When I first got there I didnt know what to expect considering it was a small stage with no curtain. However, they made it work, and the acting was very good!!! :)
I had a great time! It wasnt sugar coated, and it was very real and full of emotion.
Ample street parking.
The Idea Man takes us into that great gaping gulf between labor and management. In leaps Al, a sharp but underachieving line worker, who drops a suggestion in “the box” on how to improve the machine he’s tied to, which is so brilliant it could revolutionize the industry. His prize: a one hundred dollar check and a plaque. The corporate bosses see it as a win-win windfall. But Al’s got other ideas.
This biting commentary on class warfare by playwright Kevin King with award-winning director David Fofi at the helm will take you into the trenches, boardrooms, bedrooms, and barrooms of today’s industrial world where exploitation is a given.
