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

As my first experience at The MET, I was pleasantly surprised by the welcoming, intimate nature of the staff and environment... but the show was just awful. Inexperienced and low quality vocalists, awkward blocking and choreography, and bad syncing with the band led me to leave during intermission.
Quotes & Highlights
- "The stars of the show were all wonderfully talented ... While they all sang with energy and professionalism, I especially liked AnnaLisa [Erickson,] whose performance reminded me somewhat of Bette Midler." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.lasplash.com/publish/Los_Angeles_Performances_116/songs-for-a-new-world-review.php"><em>LA Splash</em></a>
- A small cast... and a small but dynamic band, led by Director and DOMA Theatre Company cofounder Marco Gomez, have done an excellent job of presenting Brown’s captivating music." --<a target="_blank" href="http://www.examiner.com/review/songs-for-a-new-world"><em>Examiner</em></a>
Soaring melodies and irresistible rhythms mark this collection of story-songs by composer Jason Robert Brown ( 13, Parade). Sixteen driving, exquisitely crafted songs tell sixteen unique stories peopled by characters of today. Songs for a New World chronicles the lives of four characters each who have hit a brick wall and who are forced to make major life changing decisions, take a stand on the conflicts they face in their personal lives or turn around and go back. Throughout the narratives chronicled in this song cycle musical, each character gains deeper insight into human emotion, fear, love, anger and hope for a better tomorrow.
