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

Set in the dead of winter in Baraboo, Wisconsin, The Butcher Of Baraboo, tells a tale of family secrets, a very big knife…. and a whole lot of caffeine. It’s February 17th and local butcher Valerie (Carlyle King) is marking the one-year anniversary of her husband’s mysterious disappearance. Knowing she is the target of local gossip and suspicion, Valerie hopes the day will go by quickly and quietly. But her hopes are dashed before the end of the first cup of her morning coffee when she learns not only that her misfit 32 year-old daughter and Walgreen’s pharmacist Midge (Nina Sallinen) is selling drugs to the junior high students, but also that her prodigal brother-in-law Donal (Carl J. Johnson) has returned to town and moved in next door with his young wife Sevenly (Jenny Kern) and their six children. To further complicate matters, Valerie’s begrudging sister-in-law and town police officer Gail (Rebecca Jordan) can’t seem to stay away, seeking out free meat, overdosing and botching her attempted suicide. It’s cold, it’s crowded, and it’s caffeinated… what’s a woman with a meat cleaver to do?
