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

Words do not come close to expressing how much I enjoyed this inventive and entertaining adaptation. I was completely charmed and delighted by every aspect of this production. From the movement to the acting, music, and scenic design. Completely disarming and enchanting. Kudos to Tina Kronis and her talented company.

Anton's Uncles is a fresh, funny, and physical look at Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. In this original work, only the men remain, wrestling with their desires and pressed to examine a life unlived. Anton's Uncles is the latest work from Theatre Movement Bazaar (TMB) co-founders, Tina Kronis and Richard Alger. Theatre Movement Bazaar continues its unique remixing of literary classics with this new deconstruction of Anton Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya. The text is a distillation of the original with new material added. The movement score emphasizes the unspoken, unseen and unexpressed for a fresh and physical impression of Chekhov’s classic.
Anton's Uncles was honored to be one of three productions invited to the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival national event in Washington, D.C. in April, 2010. This new work from TMB co-founders Tina Kronis and Richard Alger and was originally produced by Los Angeles City College Theatre Academy. This special engagement of Anton's Uncles is part of a continuing celebration of the 150th anniversary of Anton Chekhov’s birth.
