No other word can adequately describe the excitement surrounding The Book of Mormon’s debut in Dallas this month. Tickets have flown off the shelves and are practically impossible to come by.
Unless, of course, you meet Drew, a trench coat-wearing scalper in the back alley the night of each performance. We’ve purchased from him before, but the fact that he’s naked under his overcoat and that the tickets are nonsensical symbols scribbled in glitter pen on pieces of Drakkar Noir-scented pink construction paper, we have our doubts that he’s legitimately sanctioned to sell.
So avoid that guy and try your luck at a better (and cheaper) way to get tickets. The production will conduct a pre-show lottery at the AT&T Performing Arts Center Information Center, 2353 Flora Street, making a limited number of tickets available at $25 apiece for each performance, two and a half hours prior. Thirty minutes later, names will be drawn and you have to be present to purchase.
You can get up to two tickets with your winning entry, so make sure to bring a friend to make the waiting more enjoyable.
If you don’t win, there’s always the next performance.
Or a back-alley rendezvous with Drew.
The Book of Mormon
$25 per ticket if your name is drawn, maximum 2 tickets per entry
