ATTPAC announces discounted ticket lottery for ‘The Book of Mormon’

Book of MormonThe Book of Mormon is the most awaited theater tour of the year, and if you thought tickets would be hard to come by — or just too expensive — there is a solution. And you don’t even need to be a student to benefit.

For the entire run of the show — Aug. 21 through Sept. 1 (it launches the Lexus Broadway Series season) — beginning 2½ hours before each performance, the box office, at 2353 Flora St., will conduct a lottery. You simply write your name and the number of tickets you want on a card (only one or two), and exactly two hours before curtain, they will select from the entrants a limited number of lottery winners.

Your cost? Only $25 per ticket. Considering that tickets even in the Grand Tier balcony of the Winspear run $70 — and considering the show is practically sold out — that’s a deal.

Come see me at the Winspear tonight for ‘Jekyll & Hyde’

What, exactly, is gay about Jekyll & Hyde? You can find out tonight at 7 p.m. I’m continuing my chat series at Hamon Hall inside the Winspear prior to tonight’s performance of the show. It’s only about 15 minutes, and I talk about the show from a queer perspective. Best of all: You get a complimentary glass of wine and the best parking by arriving early! (You can come to the chat even if you don’t have a ticket for the show, though you can always get one and stay.) See you there!
