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 was a wonderful production. I took my fourteen year old daughter to see it and we both enjoyed it thoroughly. It is nice to have such a high caliber cast perform locally and I am definitely tempted to see it again. Kellita Smith is a fantastic leading lady and it was pleasing to see her as one. I must say, however, that Esther Scott steals the show as most matriarchs in black families do. This is one event packed with all the good (and bad) things in life that makes living it so delicious. I highly recommend this play.
In One Woman Two Lives the strikingly beautiful Kellita Smith portrays Samantha Cooke, a complex and conflicted woman fighting to sustain and protect her family from a past that threatens to undermine her almost perfect present. Married to Jonathan, a successful mega preacher, portrayed by an equally talented Keith Bossier (The Young and the Restless), Samantha has been voted First Lady of the Year. However, the accolade causes the mother of three to doubt herself. In spite of receiving encouragement from her family and neighbors, Samantha can’t seem to shake the uneasiness that has begun to envelop her. As the play takes on surprising and startling twists and turns, her doubts and worries unfortunately become warranted.
Three time NAACP Best Director Image Award recipient Denise Dowse elicits beautiful and memorable performances from this ensemble cast which also stars veteran and award winning actors Esther Scott (You Got Served, Dreamgirls, The Geena Davis Show) who plays the outspoken mother-in-law Edna and Billy Mayo (Desperate Housewives, The Traveler) who plays a deliciously duplicitous Melvin Foster, along with neighbors Michael and Belinda Grey portrayed by Sammie Wayne and Sharon Munfus.
