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 is not a completely abysmal play, but it's definitely not one of Fred WIllard's shining moments either. It felt like the type of play that gets mocked in one of those Christopher Guest movies that are among Willard's notable roles (think Waiting for Guffman). This play is short, clocking in at 90 minutes with intermission included. Not worth the time.

The Grove Theatre is proud to announce the opening of Deathtroupe, an original play by Mary Willard, author of Moonshine, Occasional Sin, and Elvis and Juliet. Deathtroupe is a comedy with blood-curdling screams, a murderer by the name of The Chopper running loose, grilled cheese sandwiches, Jell-o, and Captain Morgan. Deathtroupe takes place in Cape Ann, Massachusetts at a bed and breakfast, during a blizzard, with dangerous bank robbers on the loose. Deathtroupe stars Fred Willard (Best in Show, Everybody Loves Raymond, WALL-E, over 100 appearances on The Tonight show With Jay Leno), and an all star cast, including Grove favorites Anne-Johnston Brown, Vil Towers and Howard Wilson.
