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

Since my parents were both from the Lonesome West, I am disposed to laugh at and enjoy McDonagh's plays, four of which I've seen. My objection to them is that he always seems to push just a bit too long and too far, even with this one. We get it. That said, I thought the actors did a good job portraying the oafish -- nay, brutish -- brothers, once I became attuned to their brogues. I do not think the character of Father Welsh (Walsh?) is accurately defined in your blurb. Colin Walshe (Welsh? Walsh?) played him well enough, but this whiskey priest's final choice did not convince me.
