'The Book of Mormon' tour to include pre-show lottery at box office
CAPA announced that "The Book of Mormon" tour stop in Columbus will include $25 pre-show lottery tickets.
The show comes to Columbus Tuesday May 22 and runs through Sunday May 27. CAPA said this musical comedy follows the misadventures of a mismatched pair of missionaries sent halfway across the world to spread the Good Word.
CAPA said the performance has attracted as many as 800 entries at some performances. Lottery seats have been made available for every stop on the national tour.
Entries will be accepted at the box office beginning two and a half hours prior to each performance; each person will print their name and the number of tickets (1 or 2) they wish to purchase on a card that is provided said CAPA.
Two hours before curtain, names will be drawn at random for a limited number of tickets priced at $25 each (cash only). CAPA added only one entry is allowed per person.
"The Book of Mormon" features book, music, and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez, and Matt Stone. Tony Award-winner Lopez is co-creator of the long-running hit musical comedy, Avenue Q. The musical is choreographed by Tony Award-winner Casey Nicholaw (Monty Python’s Spamalot, The Drowsy Chaperone) and is directed by Nicholaw and Parker.
The show has won nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, Best Score, Best Book, Best Direction, Best Featured Actress, Best Scenic Design, Best Lighting Design, Best Sound Design, and Best Orchestrations.
Tickets can also be purchased online here or at the CAPA box office.
