Praise the Lord! When the national tour of The Book of Mormon comes back to the Buell Theatre tomorrow for a three-week run that continues until November 24, it will bring back the ticket lottery that was so popular the first time around.
A limited number of tickets for each performance will be sold through the lottery. Starting two and a half hours before each performance, you can print your name and the number of tickets you'd like (one or two) on a card provided by the theater (only one entry per customer); two hours before curtain, names will be drawn for a limited number of tickets priced at $25 each. Winners must be present, and pay on the spot.
Otherwise, tickets -- if you can get them -- start at $40 and go up, way up, from there.
The Book of Mormon, winner of nine Tony Awards, features book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the Coloradans who created South Park, along with Robert Lopez, co-creator of Avenue Q.
For more information -- including the schedule that can help you plan your lottery waits -- call 303-893-4100 or go to denvercenter.org.
