Winner of 9 Tony Awards

October 7 - 9, 2022

With NINE Tony Awards - including Best Musical - a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album, and leading New York Times critic Ben Brantley himself calling it the "best new musical of the century", The Book of Mormon's 2011 debut was a pop culture moment. Still enjoying concurrent engagements in London's West End and on Broadway, the bad boy of musical theatre remains a top draw, leaving audiences either outraged or in pain from laughing to this day. Now heading out across the country for the first time since 2016, don't miss your chance to catch this modern classic. Just be prepared for the lewd, the crude, and downright naughty songs and antics along the way...

One-man comedy tornado Bert Kreischer first caught the attention of the comedy world when he was featured in a Rolling Stone article in 1997 for his student party antics. Realizing his penchant for storytelling and making people laugh as a consequence, Kreischer honed his stand-up chops and later became a regular on TV in his own shows Bert The Conquerer, Hurt Bert and The X Show, as well as stints on the Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel and Conan.
