The 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.
