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

Well produced. The set, the costumes, the multi media interactions, the talented cast,and the smooth direction make this show. The problem was the script itself. The writers seemed too attached to the book, making it for a loooong night. The first act was almost entirely expository. Although the film projections on the upstage wall were clever perfection, they did not forward the story. They only made it longer. Kudos to the actors and director for their efforts and commitment. The writers, however, may want to rethink the important differences between film, prose and theatre.

"Dirk" is one of the most inventive productions I have seen. It is funny and thought provoking with a terrific cast of excellent actors. I have not seen such good acting in a long time. This could become a cult hit and is not to be missed.

<p>A 200-year old Greek pot. An ordinary modern salt cellar lodged inside. This is impossible (or at least inexplicable)! From the mind of Douglas Adams, who brought you The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, comes Dirk, a ghost/horror/detective/time-travel/romantic comedy/epic that begins with a seemingly innocent conjuring trick and ends with the most devastating secret of humankind! </p>
