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
"The Mitchells" tells the story of a young man who is confronted with having to disclose to his ostensibly conservative parents that he is gay before he is outed on a national Diane Sawyer television special. The full-length play is based on Smith's "Christmas with the Mitchells," a one-act that was part of Playwrights 6's "Christmastime is Queer," staged in 2002 at the Celebration Theatre in Hollywood. The critically acclaimed one-act was a finalist in the 2003 GLAAD L.A. Outstanding Theatre Awards.
The full-length "Mitchells" was named a finalist in the 2005 New Play Contest at Theatre Conspiracy in Fort Myers, Fla. and a semi-finalist in the 2004 Ashland (Ore.) New Plays Festival.
"The Mitchells" is directed by Jonathan Levit, who also directed "Christmas with the Mitchells." In the cast are Larrs Jackson, Morris Nash, Lisa Robert, Peter James Smith, Amy Tofte, Jamie Virostko and Greg Wolf.
