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
Quotes & Highlights
“An armrest-gripping story that investigates, indeed, confuses, the line between sacred and profane love. Think of a collaboration between Albert Camus and Carlos Castenada. It’s a simple production (the set, the clipped dialogue, the abbreviated gestures, the hermit lives of the two protagonists). But its simplicity belies a slew of pertinent unanswered (and unanswerable) questions. The production elicits stupefaction, admiration, delight and, most of all, empathy.” —The Huffington Post
