If there is such a thing as a comic antihero, Elder Cunningham in the highly acclaimed and wildly irreverent "The Book of Mormon" is it. Cody Jamison Strand portrays the character who is the kind of person - very clingy, prototypically schlubby and frequently less than truthful - that would have folks of all religious denominations unified in their haste to un-friend him on Facebook. And yet, Strand's character is able to harness those repellent qualities and humorously bring together Mormon missionaries and a small village in Northern Uganda - not only in their appreciation of each other, but for the universal role that storytelling and religion play as well.  PHOTOS: Best in theater 2013 | Charles McNulty The Tony-award winning musical is now on national tour at the Pantages Theatre through May 11. Below is an edited transcript of a conversation with Strand, 24, who also performed the role on Broadway.

Just a couple hours' drive east of Yellowstone National Park is the Buffalo Bill Historical Center, less a passing fancy of entertainment than a rich and detailed history lesson that plainly demonstrates that the show about the man — and the myth — is galloping and kicking up dust well into the 21st century.

The stowaway's collar identified him as Cody, 2. The cat had jumped unnoticed into the roughly 2-by-3-foot box as it was being packed, said Marie Webster of Dallas, whose daughter is Cody's owner.

If life is measured in our ability to achieve understanding with others about our common humanity, then writer-director Patrick Wang's absorbing debut feature "In the Family" - about a custody battle - has to count as a signature achievement. At nearly three hours it's long, but in Wang's pacing estimation, what is time when at stake is a decent character's threatened sense of being, fairness and belonging? Wang himself stars as humble Tennessee contractor Joey, whose life partner Cody (Trevor St. John)
