Lucky? Book of Mormon tickets in Dallas will be available for $25 via a lottery
The raunchy musical's national tour hits Dallas from August 21 through September 1.
DOWNTOWN DALLAS If procuring tickets to the upcoming production of nine-time Tony Award winning The Book of Mormon at the Winspear Opera House seemed an impossible dream, we've got good news. The AT&T PAC announced that a small number of $25 tickets have been reserved and will be available via pre-show lottery.
The Book of Mormon is a collaboration between South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone with Robert Lopez, co-creator of Avenue Q, and director/choreographer Casey Nicholaw of Spamalot fame. The excruciatingly non-PC hit rolls off of South Park's boundary-breaking success by, like the raunchy Emmy-winning animated TV show, tackling hot-button contemporary social and political topics without taking itself too seriously -- quite the balancing act. The Book of Mormon tickets are so coveted that, in other cities throughout its national tour, similar lotteries have reached as many as 800 hopeful entries.
Lottery entries are accepted at the AT&T PAC box office at 2353 Flora Street beginning two and a half hours before each performance. Each person prints his or her name and desired number of tickets (no more than two). Two hours before curtain, names will be drawn at random for a limited number of tickets, which will cost $25 per ticket. Only one entry per performance is allowed, and winners must be present with a valid ID to receive a ticket.
