Hoorah! Book of Mormon opens next week for its second run in San Francisco (see our review from last year's touring production), and if you hadn't heard, it's a hilarious and wonderful musical that everyone with a sense of humor should see.
Tickets are still available for purchase, though only limited numbers and it's looking like a lot of them are going to be the very non-cheap, $205 ones.
But the good news? SHN SF will do the daily lottery again, so if you're committed and want to save some money, you can line up at the box office each day and try your chances at getting a pair of tickets for the deeply discounted price of $29 (cash only). The deal goes like this: For the whole run of the show, November 27 to January 19, you can show up at the box office as early as you like, but it's not going to necessarily get you any closer to a ticket. They'll only take entries, written on a piece of paper, for a half hour starting 2 and a half hours before each performance (5:30 to 6 for most evening performances). Then, two hours before the performance, names will be drawn at random, and if you're drawn you can pay cash for your ticket(s). You're limited to two tickets, and these will be front-row orchestra. We're guessing the competition may not be so stiff later into the run, like in early January, but we'll see.
Just as a bonus, here's original Broadway cast member Andrew Rannells singing one of the hilarious central songs in the show, "I Believe."
