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 LOVE it - it is a MUST SEE! If you liked In Burges - you'll love this! The cast and direction - phenomenal - set - sound - special effects - equally phenomenal. Chris Pine is a standout – hooray for a bonafide movie-star that comes from theatre!

- “The good people of Inishmore cordially invite you to watch them paint the town red — a vivid, sticky red that comes, as the phrase goes, straight from the heart."<em>--</em><a target="_blank" href="http://theater.nytimes.com/2006/02/28/theater/reviews/28inis.html?pagewanted=1">Ben Brantley<em>, The New York Times</em></a>
Olivier Award-winner Martin McDonagh (The Pillowman) makes comedy from carnage in this highly theatrical — and unapologetically bloody — romp.
Padraic (played by Chris Pine) is a handsome, dedicated terrorist deemed too mad for the IRA. He takes a break from torturing “valid targets” and blowing up fast food restaurants when he hears that his best friend in the world, a beloved cat, is doing poorly.
Critics raved and gasped over this 2006 Tony Award® Best Play nominee. You can decide for yourself when the original Broadway director stages this daring and disturbingly intoxicating dark comedy.
Directed by Wilson Milam (Tony-nominated for directing the Broadway production of this play), the cast of The Lieutenant of Inishmore features (in alphabetical order) Ian Alda, Andrew Connolly, Coby Getzug, Seán G. Griffin, Kevin Kearns, Zoe Perry, Chris Pine and Brett Ryback.
