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

This play packs a lot into a fairly short time. The story tracks fairly closely the Duke Lacrosse case, with a focus on a young, ambitious reporter who gets swept up in her own initial success. It shows pretty clearly the pressures and temptations faced by journalists in their quest to gain and maintain notoriety. The acting is convincing all around and the play gives a good feel for the hydraulic pressure created on everyone connect to a big news story.

This is one of the best plays the Pasadena Playhouse has presented in years. The audience is made to care about the characters. The story is multi layered and involving. Great acting and modern, projected scenery help to bring the story to life.
