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

Eric C. is the reason to see this show. This is not my favorite Sondheim musical, but he MAKES this a good show and a fun way to spend your evening. His performance looks to be effortless and his ease with himself on the stage relaxes the audience and allows us to just enjoy ourselves.
The price is right, the theater is gorgeous and it was obvious the cast enjoyed being there. This is a great way support live theater.
One of the funniest musicals in the American Songbook, this clever, tuneful take on silly doings in ancient Rome makes for an evening of giddy entertainment. Combining the best traditions of Greek comedy, musical theatre and just a dash (maybe more) of burlesque, the tale of the wily slave out to win his freedom is a delight for all. Throw in some bright tunes from one of Americas’ best composers and a bevy of beautiful girls and you have an audience pleaser for everyone in the audience. Comedy Tonight!
