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. 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
“a big and very enjoyable play full of chewy intellectual questions… Director John Heimbuch understands this play and its setting well… Vaughn digs into [his] meaty role with an actor’s talons and claws. He creates a Kynaston of effete and supreme arrogance… He and Froiland bristle with realism as Othello and Desdemona.” —Star Tribune
“Walking Shadow Theatre Company is offering a smart local premiere of this tale, which, though set in the early 1600s, has plenty to say to contemporary audiences about gender roles, power and the passions that drive us… Wade A. Vaughn deftly trods a fine line between the actor who plays women with masterful affectation and the off-stage man whose life is significantly more nuanced.” —Pioneer Press
