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

This is truly a piece that allows an actor to shine (or fail). It's a pleasure to watch a performance that contains no special effects at all - just pure acting skills. This is an adult show, but not because of language or sex. It's just that I am not sure a younger audience would really appreciate it. (Okay, I sound very ageist there.) The female performer is wonderful; the male actor is good. I recommend this show to anyone who knows loneliness but who has a desire to make a connection.
