Searching for answers to life's questions (preferably in song)? Want to give the start of 2016 a comedic boost? Fear you won't get enough Christ during Christmas season? If you answered yes to any or all of these, you're in luck. The Book of Mormon returns to Seattle from December 29–January 10 to spread its gospel at the Paramount Theatre. South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone's Tony-winning megahit musical manages to be both outrageously irreverent and compassionately warm-hearted. It's a theatrical religious experience worth seeing again and again.
Tickets for The Book of Mormon go on sale Monday, October 26 at 10am at stgpresents.org, by phone at 877-784-4849, or at the Paramount Theatre box office. Seats start at $35.
On the arena rock front, English rock powerhouse Muse has lined up a return trip to KeyArena on December 12. It will be a new Muse experience for long time fans, as the group plays its soaring spacey rock in the round (i.e. the stage will be set up in the middle of the arena with a 360 degree production). Bonus: Barsuk Records' own electronic rock outfit Phantogram will open the show.
Tickets for Muse at KeyArena go on sale Friday, October 23 at 10am through ticketmaster.com. Seats cost $35–$65.
