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

AMAZING one of the best shows I have seen in years. The music was great and the leads amazing. total energy and I swore I was watching keely smith and Louis Prima
The show should be sold out every night and should go on broadway. Better than the Jersey Boys
SPECTACULAR and I would go see it again

“A rush of musical adrenaline.” —The Hollywood Reporter
“A near transcendent musical and comedic re-creation of the legendary Lous & Keely lounge act.” —Variety
Directed by Taylor Hackford
Written & Performed by Vanessa Claire Smith & Jake Broder with Nick Cagle & Erin Matthews
Inspired by the birth of Las Vegas and the lounge acts that made the Strip a legendary breeding ground for entertainers, Louis & Keely is a vintage love story set to the beat of jazz. Based on true events, Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara examines the hard-won career of 20th Century music icon Louis Prima and how he turned 16 year old Keely Smith into a star.
Nominated for 14 Los Angeles theater awards, Louis & Keely Live at the Sahara has become one of LA’s most popular original musicals with both critics and audiences alike.
The show has added a new director, Academy Award winner Taylor Hackford, a new book, and several additional characters (including Frank Sinatra in a major supporting role) since its Hollywood run. With a live jazz band on stage every night, popular standards such as “That Old Black Magic,” “Hey Boy, Hey Girl,” “Just a Gigolo”, “I Wish You Love” and “Embraceable You” will keep your toes tapping all night long.
