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

It’s time to let your hair down and dance the night away! Hairspray, Broadway’s musical comedy phenomenon that inspired a major motion picture is coming to the jewel of San Pedro, the Warner Grand Theatre.
It’s 1962 Baltimore and big-haired and boisterous teen Tracy Turnblad wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight Tracy is transformed from outsider to irrepressible teen celebrity. But can an unconventional trendsetter win the heart of heartthrob Link Larkin and integrate a television show without denting her ‘do? Hairspray, winner of eight Tony Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.
“Hairspray is all about being who you are and not being afraid to stand up for what’s right, all the while pursuing your dreams,” says director Summer Cacciagioni. “It’s what we at Encore stand for every day and we’re so proud to be bringing it to the historic Warner Grand.” Don’t miss such crowd favorites as “You Can’t Stop the Beat,” “Good Morning, Baltimore, “Nicest Kids in Town” and “Without Love."
The production is directed by Summer Dey Cacciagioni with Musical direction by Mike Walker, choreography by Jennifer DiBenedetto, and set design by Marcelo Cacciagioni.
