The Book of Mormon

In 2010, South Park's Matt Stone and Trey Parker teamed up with Robert Lopez to bring Broadway the hit comedy it so desperately needed.

Broadway on a Budget: The Book of Mormon

“The Book of Mormon” takes religion, life and responsibility and spins it in a way that keeps audiences laughing throughout the whole show.

The story of the show begins when Kevin Price, an all-around perfect Mormon, and his mission companion Arnold Cunningham, who can never seem to stop making things up, get their very first mission location: Uganda. To put it lightly, their adventures do not go as planned.

With a hysterical book and catchy showtunes, “The Book of Mormon” is a definite must-see musical. Any show that has won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, should be given a chance.

“The Book of Mormon” tickets can get extremely pricey, so for people who cannot afford to burn through their pockets, there are a few cheaper options to see this smash-hit.

Two and a half hours before every performance, a lottery takes place. A Broadway show lottery happens when there are a few seats for that performance left for sale. People put their names in a bingo ball holder. Names are picked out a half hour after the lottery starts. Those who are picked get up to two front row/box seats for just $32 each.

Hopefuls who did not win lottery can get in line at the box office an hour before the show begins to buy standing room only tickets. Standing room tickets cost $27 each, up to two per customer. It is recommended that people get to the box office before Standing Room Only tickets go on sale in order to guarantee a spot to see the show.

Just as a warning to readers who are planning to see “The Book of Mormon,” there is usage of inappropriate and offensive language and movement. This show is not recommended for anyone under the age of 18. For more information on the cast and creative team, visit the show’s website.  For more on ticket pricing, visit Telecharge.
