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

I felt that the play was confusing. Not knowing when the cast was in character for the play or if they were talking with the audience directly with general information. Other than the two main characters, it seems that everyone else was just thrown into the play -- it just didn't flow well for me. I must admit that some of the dialog was funny.
Previously featured at the West Angeles Performing Arts Theatre and The Grove Theatre in Los Angeles, Let’s Talk Church focuses on the problems and issues that take place in the church. The setting takes place in a Hollywood studio as a “live” taping. Yes, Oprah has gone off the air, and Mary “Liz” Paige is the new diva of talk shows. She cleans, sings, directs, and acts. After the opening monologue, various guests are interviewed, including Dr. O. Phila (Physiologist), Deacon Delicious, Ms. Schizo, Rejocekia (played by 1st Lady Elizabeth Rhone), The Lark Sisters (played by the McGuire sisters - they think they can sing, but can’t), and the CEO of The New Church Channels (has spiritual turret syndrome).
The final scene features the cast singing a medley of Christmas Carols.
