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 play was very well done. I thought all the actors and actresses did a beautiful job of acting & singing. The music was very professionally done. I wasn't real crazy about the story itself, otherwise the play was fine. I would rate the play an 8, on a scale of 1-10 and 10 being the highest.
Winner of 6 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, only our own Los Angeles could inspire this season opener. Tough guys and shady dames populate this musical noir flash back to hot-jive/cool jazz, post-war LA.
From the pen of award-winning writer Larry Gelbart (M*A*S*H) comes the story of a clever novelist who finds he’s no match for Hollywood as he struggles to turn his hard-boiled detective novel into a movie. His Technicolor adventures, and those of his black-and-white P. I. hero, Stone, unfold to the harmonies of the fabulous ’40s.
Full of sassy dialog and terrific music, if you ever miss cutting a rug to Tommy Dorsey, or if you just love LA; this show is a must see.
