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

Quilts are more than just lovely blankets made of scraps. Pioneer women, with no money and few outlets for recreation, banded together to sew and socialize. Using the goods at their disposal, they created a form of folk art and sometimes unwittingly, sometimes knowingly, they chronicled their lives in the squares of their quilts. Quilters is a lively look in words, song, dance, and quilts, at what that uniquely American experience was all about. From the plains of Texas to a Soddy in Nebraska, through blizzards and prairie fires, hard times and good, we watch a very special quilt come together. Join us for an evening that will touch and inspire.
