The Book of Mormon: Twenty reasons you've got to see it, courtesy the cast and crew

If you are one of the lucky people who snagged a ticket to The Book of Mormon's first stop on its national tour before the Denver run sold out in under four hours, pat yourself on the back. If not, get in line now -- or at least get ready. As we announced yesterday, the Mormon producers have established a lottery for the show, which runs August 14 through September 2 at the Ellie; before each performance, 24 previously luckless fans will be able to snatch up $25 tickets. And if the obvious reasons -- the show's creators (and South Park maestros) Matt Stone and Trey Parker are Colorado natives, and the musical boasts awards out the wazoo -- aren't enough reason for you to get in line, Westword sat down with the cast and creators yesterday and came away with an entire list. Click through for twenty insights gleaned from the people behind the scenes.
