The Book of Mormon is one of the certifiable smashes in contemporary Broadway history — the Hamilton of 2011. It arrived in Dallas for two sold-out runs in 2014 and 2015, and the 2016 engagement — which runs only Dec. 20–31 — is wildly popular as well. In fact, you may have assumed you couldn’t get tickets … or couldn’t afford to.
But in keeping with tradition, every performance will include a ticket lottery, in which a limited number of seats will be released for $25 each. You just show up 90 minutes before curtain, write your name on the card provided (don’t try to duplicate — they will get you!) and whether you want one or two tickets. An hour beforehand, they’ll do a drawing; if you’re selected, you get to see the show right then and there. Gee, that could be enough to make you believe in miracles.
