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 was the best written and acted play I have seen since moving to LA in 2003; and this includes performances at much larger venues. No, I do not have a personal relationship with anyone involved, but I have to say: See this!

<p>The suspense of an unabashed assault takes an astonishing turn somewhere between comedy and drama. A rejected wife and a hit man, hired by her husband, expose their quirky bonding on the darker side of love. This strange and spirited, yet oddly familiar, exchange between the characters reveals a compelling tale of attraction, infidelity, betrayal, and deceit that might just have a chance for redemption…during an unexpected stirring of conscience.</p> <p>Faithful will be directed by Mike Myers, who is also the Ruskin’s managing director. Mike has produced more than 25 projects since 2002. He is a co-creator of the Ruskin’s critically acclaimed LA CAFÉ PLAYS, a monthly offering of one-acts that are done in 10 1/2 hours from conception to staging</p> <p>John Ruskin (Artistic Director) who’s critically acclaimed staging of Strange Snow last season was extended to accommodate demand from local audiences. John’s years of experience include his studies at the Yale School of Drama, British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England, and the University of Colorado in Boulder. In New York Ruskin joined the acting faculty of the Neighborhood Playhouse at the request of Sanford Meisner (who he apprenticed) before moving to Los Angeles where he founded his own school of acting and a professional theatre company.</p>
