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
Cuts, a world premiere, is an evening of short plays with a theme of duplicity. It includes short plays scribed by eight members of the Dog Ear Playwrights' Collective: Bryan Davidson, Robert Fieldsteel, Joy Gregory, Katy Hickman, Wayne Peter Liebman, Jennifer Maisel, Leon Martell, and Jacqueline Wright, who have created an evening of thought-provoking theatre on the "cutting edge."
- An It by Jacqueline Wright – Kept in captivity, It lives only through the heartbeats of others. As It's captors attempt to decipher It's bizarre language, the lovely Janet comes to visit, igniting in It a forgotten need for human love and friendship. Can It be more than just an It?
- Biblio by Wayne Liebman – Librarian wannabe, Glynda, is daddy's little girl, but daddy's a real spook – cranking out code for a secret government agency. Daddy's mistress only confuses things – she’s way too blonde and packing a wicked syringe. Really, it's all a girl can do to keep her dress on straight.
- Blue by Bryan Davidson – A young hematologist sets out to bring a cure to the “Blue People” of Appalachian Kentucky. But when his enzyme cure works, the young woman he cures vanishes. Has he given her the strength to search for a better life or created a murderous rage in the young man who loved her?
- Constructing Vegas by Leon Martell – It’s construction and choreography versus maid service as two sisters fight over "the man with no collar bone." What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas... in fact, it can't get out no matter how much it wants to.
- Fabric by Robert Fieldsteel – With a pair of scissors and an eye for fashion, Max and Rachel infiltrate the splendor and high fashion of the Ascot Races. Set in the early part of the 20th century, their con brings them success in the garment industry. But in the end, who’s conning whom?
- Finish & Trim by Joy Gregory – Sparse poetry scores the inner lives of three young women on the day that became one of the United States labor movement’s most galvanizing tragedies. Locked in the burning Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in 1911, the women reflect on the sensual details of their ordinary lives.
- Nomenclature by Katy Hickman – One gardener’s weed is another gardener’s flower.
- Soar by Jennifer Maisel – An adolescent’s rebelliousness turns to tragedy. Now a mother cannot sleep. Can the late-night arguments with the daughter who deceived her finally give her the strength to cut the ties to her debilitating grief?
