'Book of Mormon' tickets available through pre-show lottery

Posted February 10, 2014

"The Book of Mormon" begins its two week run at the Durham Performing Arts Center Tuesday. While tickets are scarce, you might be able to score some through special pre-show lotteries. 

Starting two and a half hours prior to each performance, the DPAC Ticket Center, 123 Vivian St., will be hosting ticket lotteries. People print their names and the number of tickets they wish to purchase (a two ticket maximum) on the cards provided. Only one entry per person. Two hours before curtain, names will be drawn for a limited number of tickets at $25. You must be present to win. Only cash will be accepted for the lottery tickets. 

"The Book of Mormon" runs Feb. 11-23 at the DPAC.

    Glarg might have a point. If this play had been poking fun at Jews, there would be massive outrage at the anti-semitism. For what ever reason, Mormons are expected to take it all in stride as "poking fun." Not really fair, if you ask me.

    Hmmm... maybe the people who can't make the show on Wednesday night due to the ice storm who have already paid FULL PRICE for tickets, should be considered first for this "lottery?" Just sayin'... if they have tickets, why are we being told they don't, and no exchanges are available? Hmmm... may have to rethink those season tickets next year.

    You mean like country music stars poking fun at Obamacare? http://www.nbcnews.com/pop-culture/pop-culture-news/carrie-underwood-brad-paisley-poke-fun-healthcare-gov-cma-awards-f8C11551556

    Or Gilbert and Sullivan making fun of feminism? http://www.vcstar.com/news/2010/mar/26/battle-of-the-sexes-gilbert-sullivan-poke-fun-at/

    A musical is hardly "hate speech" just because it's poking fun at something YOU like. One of the hallmarks of a small-minded fanatic is being unable to laugh at oneself. Just saying.

    Anti-religious hate speech.

    Could you have a play making fun of some other group?
