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

Wonderful play and cast. It was very interesting and moving - who knew the ethical debates behind some of the medical services that exist today. Very timely with the healthcare reforms that may be coming with the new administration. It sparked a great post-show discussion.

In the early 1960s, an anonymous committee of ordinary citizens in Seattle debated which kidney disease victims to choose for an experiment: something called kidney dialysis. If the experiment worked, a small number of people would live instead of surely die from kidney failure. But who among the selection pool lives? How will the committee choose? Playwright Christopher Meeks centers the action on one person, attorney Gabriel Hornstein, who desperately needs what the committee offers.
