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

First and foremost, if you can't deal with a glimpse of full frontal male nudity and a topless woman, don't go. If you can, this is a fun dark comedy that continues to get better as it goes.
Each of the actors play two parts, and they do such a good job you wonder "is that 'x' or another actor?
This is a very small theater - less than 75 seats - so every seat is a good seat. Parking is on the street, especially the other side of Lankershim, so be prepared to walk a bit or come early.
At 55+ our group was by far the oldest group in the audience, and my 81 year old aunt had as good a time and enjoyed the play as much as the twenty-somethings in the audience.
Quotes & Highlights
- "No doubt about it -- this backstage comedy will have Hollywood's actor-types howling with laughter at themselves.” --<em>Blade</em> Magazine
- “Ingeniously clever ... cutting edge humor!” --<em>Tolucan Times</em>
- "Perfect ... expertly accomplished ... only <em>A Midsummer Night's Dream</em> has a more fantastic premise." --<em>Backstage West </em>
Days before it's set to open a play, a small theater company learns it doesn't have the rights to perform the show and must scramble to come up with an all-new production — that utilizes the same actors, set and even a kissing scene. A character-driven comedy populated by drama queens, aspiring starlets, surfer dudes and dedicated professionals, Doubting Thomason takes the audience behind the scenes for a funny peek at life on the other side of the curtain.
