‘Book of Mormon’ brings profane parody to Seattle

It’s impossible to say if the Church of Latter Day Saints got any converts during last night’s opening performance of “The Book of Mormon.” But it’s safe to say many in the audience left as true believers – in the Broadway musical.

The national touring show of the New York hit is at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre for a run through Jan. 20. It’s as blasphemous as it hilarious.

The show opens with a recorded voice over delivered by the show’s creators – Matt Stone and Trey Parker – with their distinctive “South Park” inflections. They voice Jesus (“Ahh

Centerstage Theatre puts on rousing ‘Pinocchio’ pantomime

English pantomimes have an image problem. Mention the term to the average person, as I recently did, and you get two responses “What’s that?” or “You mean mimes?”

I didn’t know what one was either until Alan Bryce started producing them at Federal Way’s Centerstage Theatre several years ago.

First, let’s get that word, pantomime, out of the way. There is no miming or wild gesturing. This is a musical mash-up of fairytale, song, jokes, dancing and audience participation. You’re never quite sure if you’re watching a kids’ show or adult content. In the end, it doesn’t matter. Just check the “All of the above” box and enjoy it.

That’s what I did when I attended Centerstage’s latest pantomime, “Pinocchio,” now playing through Dec. 23. Directed by Vanessa Miller, it was a rollicking, fast paced farce centered around the Pinocchio tale.

There were plenty of kids in attendance but plenty of humor was geared for an adult audience. It’s a cliché, I know, but this is really a production the whole family can enjoy.
