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

It is ironic that Lithgow says he added the second story because of feedback that people wanted more after the first story - but I agree with most of the reviews that the second story felt long, the laughter was maniacal and the people didn't want more of that... Loved the autobiographical stuff and second story should be shorter and a different pick.
Quotes & Highlights
- “A tour de force that doubles as a primer on acting....” --<em>The New York Times</em>
- “I just charge three dollars because personally I don't mind much shavin' a dead person. They lay a whole lot stiller than live customers.” --<em>Haircut</em> by Ring Lardner
Armed with only an armchair and some yellowed pages, Tony Award winner John Lithgow tells you not the story of his life, but the stories of his life. Indelible stories spun by the likes of P.G. Wodehouse and Ring Lardner. Stories lovingly -- and expertly -- dramatized by his parents and grandmother, handed down from generation to generation. In Lithgow’s adroit hands, each story is its own theatrical masterpiece brimming with peculiar characters, humor, plot twists and —most of all Lithgow’s inimitable charm, stagecraft and genuine affection for the tales and the storytellers who introduced them to him some 60 years ago.
