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 seen John Waters Performance on Netflix, so I sorta knew what was going to be happening. However, Waters kept his act up to date and discussed different topics than his previous show! Elvis Perkins was also great, however, I did have a hard time hearing some of the lyrics, but that wasn't his fault since people "love" to come to shows late! Seriously people get your shiz together and don't be fussy while a show is going on!
The book signing afterward was pretty cool and well organized. UCLA has a lot of events and they their staff well trained and professional.

John Waters is always a hoot, as witty, cynical, and contemporary as ever. I would like to have seen Matt Gubler do more of a schtick, and Elvis' musical act was funny, but got repetative. He could have shortened it by one or two numbers.

As a screenwriter, director, artist, actor, and all-around filth elder, John Waters has become a rotten renaissance man of unprecedented cultural influence. Not only was his movie Hairspray turned into a wildly successful Tony Award-winning musical, his recently published memoir, Role Models, has been called “alarmingly refined.” Waters’ one-man vaudeville act, This Filthy World Goes Hollywood sends up show business, the art world, and his own lunatic career in a rapid-fire performance. Dynamic modern-rock recording artist Elvis Perkins opens the show with a solo set, and actor Matthew Gray Gubler hosts as the evening’s emcee.
