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
Take the Points is a comedy for anyone who has ever bet on anything. It breaks down the odds on relationships, and how they work—mostly, how they fail. As a relationship outsider, writer/performer Joe Mortimer questions their validity, and the ridiculousness of ceremony. He challenges destiny, fate, and true love, and tells why he would rather wager money on grown men who barely graduated college than risk the very real possibility of a broken heart.
This original one-man piece by comedian Joe Mortimer was created after a breakup. Originally from Philadelphia, Joe is a graduate of Temple University, and received his master’s degree from West Virginia University. After graduating from WVU, he moved to New York, where he wrote and performed comedy all over town. His original sketch “The Phone Bill” was featured on HBO’s Sketch Pad. Recently he has written several television specs and is currently working on a feature. As a day job, he offers his voice to the wonderful world of TV commercials.
This production marks the world premiere of the show.
