"The Book of Mormon," running Jan. 2-14 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, will offer day-of-performance lotteries. Here's how you might snag a ticket.
“The Book of Mormon,” running Jan. 2-14 at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle, will offer day-of-performance lotteries for $25, cash-only tickets for each performance.
The 2011 musical (by Trey Parker and Matt Stone of “South Park,” plus Robert Lopez of “Avenue Q”) satirizes Mormonism by following young white missionaries who’ve air-dropped into Uganda and has won fistfuls of prizes: nine Tony Awards, give Drama Desk Awards, a Grammy, four Out Critics Circle Awards, etc.
How the lottery works: Starting two and a half hours before showtime, hopefuls can sign up at the ticket office for one or two tickets. Two hours before curtain, names will be drawn at random and the winners can pay for their tickets — again, cash only.
What are the odds for winning the lottery? “It’s impossible to say,” said Seattle Theatre Group spokesperson Julie Furlong. “One night, everybody will get them. Another night, fewer than a third will get them.”
