The people who lined up outside the Seawell Grand Ballroom to purchase tickets for The Book Of Mormon's second Denver run may have been the lucky ones. At least they could hold onto their purchases. But dozens, if not hundreds of people, who tried to buy online at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts website ran into many of the same frustrating issues as they did last year when the show was in town for the first time.
Tickets for the show -- which will be in town in October 22 - November 24 -- went on sale at 10 a.m., but just ten minutes later, the web site showed them all as being sold out. That wasn't the case, however. More infuriating was the site, which kicked people out after taking their credit card information, gave out fault information, or timed people out.
As of 12:30 p.m. today, the web site says, "If you are encountering difficulty purchasing tickets for The Book of Mormon please close your browser, clear your cache, and open a new web browser." But doing that doesn't work either, and people are taking out their anger on the DCPA's Facebook page in droves.
