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 story is of two worlds colliding in 1989, the last year of the old Vegas, the Rat pack Vegas. The son of an Elvis impersonator falls in love with the daughter of a Yale professor. The trouble begins when the Las Vegas father wants his son to join him in his Las Vegas revue, and the son wants to work for the government.
Fred Willard, (Best in Show, Everybody Loves Raymond, WALL-E, 100 appearances on The Tonight show With Jay Leno) stars as the self proclaimed “King of the Elvis Impersonators.”
He is joined by Richard Horvitz (winner of the Inland Empire award for best supporting actor in MoonShine!,) as his brother, a Dean Martin impersonator. Paul Willson (Cheers, Office Space, Malcolm in the Middle) plays the Yale professor. Judy Nazemetz (Moon Shine!, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno) plays Fred’s wife, a former exotic dancer. Natalie Lander, (Legally Blonde TV) plays Juliet and she is the daughter of David L. Lander of Laverne and Shirley fame and the granddaughter of Polly Bergen.
