SAN DIEGO — A limited number of remaining tickets for the upcoming San Diego run of the Tony Award-winning musical “The Book of Mormon” will be sold on a lottery system, Broadway/San Diego announced today.
The May 27-June 8 run of the stage production at the San Diego Civic Theatre is practically sold out, according to Christann Heideman of Broadway/San Diego.
She said 20 tickets will be aside for the lottery for each show, plus whatever single seats remain that are sprinkled about the theater. Since the number of singles will be different each night, the total number of available tickets for the lottery will vary, she said.
According to Heideman, anyone who wants lottery tickets should show up 2 1/2 hours before show time and specify whether they would like one or two tickets. The drawing will take place two hours before each show, and the winners can purchase tickets for $25 each.
She said some drawings in other markets have generated up to 800 entrants.
According to Heideman, the lottery system was last used by Broadway/San Diego for “Wicked” two years ago.
“The Book of Mormon” was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who paired up for the animated television show “South Park,” along with Robert Lopez, who put together the musical comedy “Avenue Q.”
