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

There is little more to be said about such a legendary musical as Phanton after seeing in it's various incarnations throughout 20 years or so. It was phenomanel. The story, the singing, the music, are all ageless; it is one of thoe cases in theatre where the extremely loud music is effective & necessary. The dancing was perfectly beautiful, the sets, although not elaborate, were very convincing and the use of lighting was masterful. I love this show. I don't know if you're supposed to use the word "best" when describing a play or a movie, but I honestly think this must be the best musical in history. Of course I always said that every time I saw "Evita", but Phantom has all the elements of great theatre and you still get chills & thrills every time. It would have been a perfect evening other than the resident distractions: streams of latecomers parading down the isles well into the first act, blocking the view of the stage, accompanied by whispering ushers with flashlights, which is blatently unfair to those who have arrived & taken their seats on time. Since this is the last round of the 20 year traveling national tour, (the marquee at the Pantages says "Say Good Bye To The Phantom") , which made me sad, I just might drop in at least one more time before I say my final farewell. Musicals like this come along once in a life time or less, and can never be duplicated. I even doubt that something better will come along anytime soon, if ever.
With some of the most lavish sets, costumes and special effects ever to have been created for the stage, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera directed by Harold Prince traces the tragic love story of a beautiful opera singer and a young composer shamed by his physical appearance into a shadowy existence beneath the majestic Paris Opera House.
Adapted from Gaston Leroux’s classic novel of mystery and suspense, this award-winning musical has woven its magical spell over standing room audiences in more than 100 cities worldwide and is now the longest running show in Broadway history. For his final overture in Los Angeles,Phantom returns to the Pantages Theatre to take your breath away.
