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

An ambitious undertaking that, while very good on the surface, lacks emotional depth and any real connection to the characters. That and the overbearing music that drowned out most of the cast most of the time. The performances are mostly very good with the exception of Dr. Jekyll/Hyde. He can sing very well but when he is not singing there is no charisma, his delivery is without any emotion, good or bad, and therefore it is lost on the viewer as to why the women have any feeling for him whatsoever. Perhaps the book was condensed for this production? In any case, the love story falls completely flat thus making the journey a less than fulfilling one. The end means nothing since we do not ever come to care for any of the characters. I applaud the undertaking of such a large production and was impressed with the talent onstage. There was, however, a very odd note from the director in the program essentially apologizing for his actors and the company's production. If I were part of the cast I think I would have been offended and it really bothered me. What kind of director would do such a thing? In fact, the cast was mostly very impressive and the area most lacking in the production? The direction. There is more irony and sadness to be found in this than in the story put before us. But, to the cast BRAVO!
An evocative tale of the epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic story about a brilliant doctor whose experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart. Convinced the cure for his father’s mental illness lies in the separation of Man’s evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
