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
“It’s hard to imagine anybody inhabiting the role more convincingly than soap opera veteran Judith Chapman. Her mastery of Leigh’s mannerisms - that cat-that-got-the-cream smile, that icy stare, that lilting voice - is uncanny.” -Los Angeles Times
“Actor Judith Chapman and director Elina de Santos offer much to savor in this smart and elegant showcase … Vivien strikes a perfect balance between surveying her career and illuminating the joys and despair she experienced. This is a bravura performance, through and through.” -Back Stage (Critic’s Pick)
“It’s passionate, theatrical and thoroughly engaging as Chapman and Leigh connect on more than one plateau. She lives and breathes this role, as hers is a dexterously physical and brilliantly impassioned tour-de-force performance. Vivien is not to be missed!” —broadwayworld.com
“This is simply terrific. What an extraordinary piece of writing. Rick Foster’s range of understanding and recreating Vivien amazed and moved me with every page; all so marvelously in character.” —Tarquin Olivier, Vivien Leigh’s Stepson
