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
The play will examine two of America’s most powerful street traditions. The first is the impact of gangs of Los Angeles. The second street tradition is the Nation of Gods and Earths (formally known as the 5% Nation.) These two organizations were geared to influence the youth by establishing self identity and perseverance. Though initiated with good intentions, some members end up living the complete opposite; existing in denial. Five unique characters will seduce your thoughts with dramatic technique simulating sexual confidence and skill. The plot’s literary experimentation is similar to foreplay. Just when you think you’ve reached nirvana, you’re exhausted by multiple climaxes. See, these characters are in love. They’re passionate about love. They’re in love with life and their ambitious pursuit of happiness. They’re also in love for all the right and wrong reasons.
Audiences will see a tight knit cast singing, dancing and acting to this masterpiece of a script. With the exception of newcomer Ja’Lon Wright, stage veterans Tony Paul, Lee White, Minerva Larry and Steve Abrams were all cast members of “Jumping the Broom,” Damiek’s first production in 2003 that received six NAACP nominations.
