Straz Center offers lottery for $25 'Book of Mormon' tickets

Multiple Tony Award-winning musical The Book of Mormon is still one of the hottest selling tickets on Broadway, so it makes sense that the touring production, which opens Tuesday at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts, has been one of the biggest tickets in Tampa Bay. If you haven't been able to get a seat for the show's two-week run or can't swing the $70-plus ticket prices, you're in luck. The Straz just announced a ticket lottery for Mormon, similar to the ones they've done with popular shows like Wicked, in which a limited number of tickets will be available before each performance for just $25. One person can enter to win up to two tickets at the Straz ticket office beginning 21/2 hours before each show. Names will be drawn two hours before curtain for the $25 tickets. Note that the lottery is cash only. Only one entry allowed per person. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show valid ID to purchase tickets. Go to or call (813) 229-7827. — Michelle Stark, Times staff writer
