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

Great show. Strong opening, great songs! Super funny. I absolutely loved it. If you don't want to be splashed sit 5th row or beyond. The actors who played Herbert West and Dr. Hill were absolutely outstanding. Whether your a fan of musical theater or all things Stuart Gordon, this is a must see!

In 1985, Stuart Gordon directed his first feature film and created a sensation. It was Re-Animator, a smashing success based on a horror story by H.P. Lovecraft. The film delivered as many laughs as it did screams making it a cult classic among horror fans and winning a Critic’s Prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Now, Gordon is back with his co-writers Dennis Paoli and William J. Norris and composer/lyricist Mark Nutter to turn Re-Animator into a musical for the stage.
Special effects are being created by the same guys who created them for the 1985 movie: Tony Doublin, John Naulin and John Beuchler. And the blood will flow so freely that the first three rows of the center section will be designated as a “splash zone.” Needless to say, the show is not for small children.
