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

"Complete" is thoughful and thought-filled. The script is wordy and the actors gallop apace--sometimes a bit too quickly apace--to keep it moving. Remember: you've said it 100 times, but we're hearing it once, so be kind and give us the occasional breath to absorb what we're hearing. There are some vague bits that would have benefited from the "clarity and precision" the author preached, and the post-show discussion that filled our drive home limned certain flaws very clearly: there were moments when my companion and I had, apparently, seen different shows, each of us extrapolating to make sense of the vagaries. That said, strong performances made the time--and the words--fly by. Kudos to the lighting designer and the sound designer, but, alas, I don't see how *that* set suited *this* play. The quick of it: if you've got a free evening, it's a solid 80 (?) minutes, but I'm not sure I'd advise someone to go out of their way.
Quotes & Highlights
“Jennifer Chambers directs with great intensity while maintaining unflagging forward momentum despite a complicated flashback structure.” —Hollywood Reporter
“Playwright Andrea Kuchlewska combines unlikely ingredients in her comedy: an est-like training program for self-realization, the art/science of linguistics and a stormy love affair involving a pair of obsessive linguists.” —LA Weekly
“The play goes back and forth in time, and director Jennifer Chambers, who was once a self-help coach, choreographs the action smoothly, so that we follow the time shifts easily. Under her guidance, the interactions between actors and audience flow effortlessly, and she has subtly interwoven the hilarity with stunningly painful moments.” —Backstage
