The Book of Mormon

If theater is your religion and the Broadway musical your sect, you've been woefully faith-challenged of late.

With the Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, Sir Elton is saying a final goodbye to the touring life.

Swoon along to "Tiny Dancer," make juvenile hand gestures to "Crocodile Rock" and smile meaningfully at your folks during "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" here for one last time.
