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 music, dancing, acting and quality of the talent were exceptional. The audience was very enthuiastic about the overall performance. I will definately look to attend future such performances at this theater.
My only negative was how the university handled parking. They charged $5 and directed you to a lot that was already full and failed to help you find alternative parking.

Sugar is the story of Joe and Jerry, unemployed musicians who witness the St. Valentine's Day Massacre in Chicago. On the run from the gangster who is hot on their trail, they join Sweet Sue and her all-female band, the Society Syncopaters. This hilarious farce with music by Jule Styne (Gypsy, Funny Girl) and lyrics by Bob Merrill (Funny Girl, Carnival) is sure to make you appreciate the beauty that drives a man mad.
One Night Only as part of the Reiner Reading Series
Starring Bets Malone (The Marvelous Wonderettes, All Shook Up), Larry Raben (The Andrews Brothers, Forbidden Broadway, Broadway's The Producers) and Nick Santa Maria (The Producers, Tommy Tune's Grease on Broadway).
Musical Theatre West's Reiner Reading Series is a great way to rediscover classics and forgotten gems from the musical theatre canon. Using minimal sets, costumes and props, actors carry scripts and perform the show and score in its entirety.
