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

Quotes & Highlights
“Forthright and funny, the clever staging avoids reverence while still applying depth to the weighty text, a testament to director Hilario Saavedra’s talent and grace… unique and sparsely beautiful…” —LA Theatre Review
“GO… a provocative performance piece…. Themes of death, infirmity and impotence are common throughout, which Saavedra and his darkly clad actors capture with subtle force.” —LA Weekly
Filament Theatre Company’s critically acclaimed production of T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land receives the “Resident at the Asylum” award following a successful run in the inaugural Hollywood Fringe Festival. “Resident at the Asylum” awards are presented to the most outstanding productions of the Hollywood Fringe Festival and receive a subsequent extended run as a co-production of Theatre Asylum.
FTC’s performance of The Waste Land is revealed to the audience through the use of found objects, music, and spoken-word–creating a series of inventively hand-lit vignettes performed and engineered by Jason Bonduris, Celeste Den, Tane Kawasaki, Carla Nassy, and director Hilario Saavedra. The ensemble speaks the entire text of T.S. Eliot’s seminal modernist poem, excluding the Latin/Greek prelude, including all the section titles.
