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

Lou Gossett Jr. directs Blood Knot starring A Martinez and Oscar Best, at The Malibu Stage Company. Gossett is best known for his Oscar winning performance in An Officer and a Gentleman, and he also won an Emmy for his performance in Roots and a Golden Globe for The Josephine Baker Story. Less known is the fact that he appeared on Broadway at the age of 17 and continued on the New York stage for many years to come. In fact it was his work in theater that kept him from playing for the New York Knicks when they drafted him out of high school. He is the founder of the Eracism Foundation which strives to bring all races on the planet into one human race.
Gossett has played the role of Zachariah himself and his experience and efforts have prepared him well for his directorial debut at The Malibu Stage Company. While watching him direct you can see him feeling the roles as if he is playing it again. The playwright, Athol Fugard, has written a script that is poetry, pathos, love and brotherhood and foremost, a masterful work of art. A Martinez and Oscar Best are both up to the task of bringing these characters to life.
A has starred on such television programs as Santa Barbara, All In the Family and The Bold and The Beautiful. In film he worked with John Wayne in The Cowboys and Meryl Streep in She Devil and with Gary Farmer and Wes Studi in Pow Wow Highway for which A won the best actor award at The Native American Film Festival. The film won best film at The Sundance Film Festival. Oscar Best appeared in Diagnosis Murder and recently in America’s Most Wanted and The Mindy Project, as well as starring in Malibu Stage Company’s production of Art.
