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

I thought the script was just okay. It needs some work. The casting was a bit off. Two of the Cuban exiles, the father and daughter, sounded like they were from Sherman Oaks. That made the story lose its authenticity. If you're going to do a story about Cubans, characters should speak like they're from Cuba. The other actors were good, especially the gentlemen who played the captain and the commander with mental illnes.

In the summer of 1980, Fidel Castro announced that he would allow Cubans living in The United States to retrieve their relatives from the island. However, when their boats arrived at Mariel, they were only allowed to take certain members of their families aboard and were required to take criminals and mental patients along with them back to the U.S.
Rolando and his son carry a convicted murderer, a raving lunatic and, worst of all, Rolando’s brother-in-law who had betrayed him to the Communists twenty-years before. When a storm leaves their tiny vessel helplessly adrift at sea, the tension escalates as the refugees find themselves in a desperate battle against the elements, each other and the demons of their past.
