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

Mike shared with us his own movie-making experiences, comparing & contrasting them to Jesus & those movies made about him ! No small task - but honest & thought-provoking, whether you were Christian or Jew, or neither ! Small space adds to the enjoyment & good work with the projected images as well. Only negative was trouble finding street parking as neighborhood is totally residential.

Funny, informative, and thought-provoking.The show weaves an engaging tale of history, discovery, and self-reflection in the context of a hilarious film-making "quest." Definitely recommend. The complimentary popcorn was an added bonus!
