“The Book of Mormon”
Pantages Theatre

The outrageously un-PC musical comedy that follows the journey of two mismatched mormon missionaries trekking around the world is back at the Pantages this month. Winner of nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, “The Book of Mormon” is as hilarious as it is inappropriate. With its explicit language, it is definitely for a mature (in age) audience only.
