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

Blank is a very moving story and well acted. The way Brian plays different characters and seamlessly switches between them is amazing. Equally exceptional, is the way he transitions to different settings and times in his life, taking the audience to places with such vivid details. This is one of Brian's best performances.
Quotes & Highlights
“In director McKerrin Kelly’s brisk, passionate production, Stanton’s writing is simultaneously dramatic and erudite, elegantly juxtaposing the philosophy of Plato and Buddha along with his own not-to-be-disparaged poetic turn of a phrase — and he demonstrates a flair for creating unexpected images out of the most minimalist concepts…. Stanton’s skill in balancing a profoundly personal tale with classic underpinnings ultimately hints at the evocative idea that all our lives are full of events and incidents that touch on the mythic and the timeless.” —LA Weekly
Blank is a world-premiere play, written by and starring Brian Stanton, co-founder of the Lone Star Ensemble. Blank is the heartwarming and humorous story of Stanton’s courageous and difficult journey to connect with his birth mother on the urging of his adoptive mother. Stanton intends the play to promote discussion and awareness of adoptee issues.
