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

Nice to see Val working. Event had an experimental edge to it. VK appears to be a bit of a Twain scholar although I daresay he is not an academic. Still, few professors would sing several spirituals to bringMT to life. There were few negatives but I believe MT was hard w his family. Huck & Jim have been called homoerotic and that was left unturned. " Hick. Finn " has been called a souped up minstrel show and indeed few blacks attended. Theatre had st noise and I struggled to hear occasionally.
Thanx for doing a cultural piece Val & co.
I tell the Tibet joke daily.
Relentless comedy, great wit, soaring song and striking prose, Citizen Twain, created and performed by Val Kilmer, celebrates the marvel of Mark Twain’s words which, according to Kilmer’s Twain, “form the ladder to my heaven.” Compelling storytelling was Twain’s lifeline and in Citizen Twain, those stories roll as unabated as a steamboat down the Mississippi. Kilmer’s hilarious and uncanny reincarnation of Mark Twain proves the news of Twain’s death has been greatly exaggerated.
