Try Your Luck In The "Book of Mormon" Ticket Race

How to snag your tix for the "it" show of the month.

Yes, Tony Award–winning The Book of Mormon, at SHN’s Curran Theatre through December 30, is really as good (and profane) as you’ve heard. (Michael Tilson Thomas’s verdict, overheard amid the opening-night mob scene: “Hilarious!”) Yes, the show’s been sold out for months. No, the five-week San Francisco run won’t be extended. (Stars Gavin Creel and Jared Gertner, who deliver crisply dazzling performances, are heading to London’s West End come February.)

There is good news, though: a limited number of Mormon tickets are being made available by lottery for every performance—at an amazing $29 per seat.

The rules:

*Show up at the box office (445 Geary, between Mason and Taylor) two hours before a performance.

*When you show up, you will be asked to print your name and the number of tickets desired (1 or 2) on an entry card.

*Ninety minutes before curtain, names will be drawn at random for a limited number of tickets priced at $29 each. Only one entry is allowed per person, and cards will be checked for duplication prior to drawing.

*Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show valid photo ID that matches the entry slip.

*Limit one entry per person and two tickets per winner. Tickets are subject to availability. Cash only.

Good luck!
