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

Great cast, set, lights, sound, script, direction, costumes... I'm not Jewish but completely identified with the socio-political struggles this family faces. It reminded me of another "Brighten Beach Memoirs" family in 1946 Brooklyn... (I parked across the street for $2 instead of paying the $10 parking fee at the Performing Arts Center)
Quotes & Highlights
“…beautifully crafted play about love, family lost and found… touches our heart.” —Wall Street Journal
“…a deeply personalized study of sisterhood, family and a crisis of faith. Moving among her characters and shifting back and forth in time, the playwright draws a comprehensive portrait of a family devastated by war.” —The New York Times
A Poignant Tale with Universal Appeal
By Barbara Lebow
Two sisters separated during childhood, one a survivor of Nazi concentration camps, the other brought up as an American, are reunited in New York City in 1946 after a separation of almost 20 years. A drama of wrenching feeling and great beauty, it not only evokes the devastation of the Holocaust, but it goes beyond to become a universal portrayal of a family filled with conflict and emotion. It is a powerful and emotionally charged tale of sustenance, hope, and the belief that from a broken and bitter past, a better future may be born.
