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 have always been impressed with the Rogue Artists' productions. Their production design is always fantastic, and this show is no exception. The creative use of set pieces, projections and lighting come together to effectively establish moods and settings. However, the script in this case is awkward and needs to be restructured. The story of a writer in the 1920's presenting works to the world as "found" ancient Greek texts that he, in fact, wrote gets lost in this production. The story flips back and forth between the writer's present day setting of the late 1800's Algeria and his imaginary ancient Greek world with his protagonist. The hoax he perpetrated is not explored in any detail and is so secondary to the play that it could be removed altogether. The characters lack depth so as to keep us uninvolved emotionally in their stories. The much talked about eroticism fails to entice the audience and instead can be a distraction. This is a visual show that lacks the normal wow factor this company is so good at producing.

Brilliantly conceived, very well acted and clever set design and props! This production lived up to my high expectations. This is the second Rogue Artists Ensemble production I've had the pleasure of enjoying and I recommend them very highly!
