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. 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
Neal LaBute (Playwright) is the author of The Shape of Things and Fat Pig, which, with reasons to be pretty, form a trilogy focusing on our modern-day obsession with physical appearance. Fat Pig won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play and was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Comedy. LaBute is also the author of The Mercy Seat, one of the first major theatrical responses to the 9/11 attacks, and Bash: Latterday Plays. His film career was launched with In the Company of Men, which won the Filmmaker’s Trophy at the Sundance Film Festival, and major awards at the Deauville Film Festival, the Independent Spirit Awards, the Society of Texas Film Critics Awards, and the New York Film Critics Circle Awards.
