SHN “Book of Mormon” Ticket Lottery a Huge Success – The Only Way to Get a Seat Now – Here’s the Video

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

Here are the rules of the game.

Here is what the lottery looks like:

I’d say that you’d have had a 10% chance of winning on Preview Night.

Realize that the scalpers and scam artists are going crazy right about now, so paying $29 for a seat what’s worth north of $290 IRL might strike you as a good deal.

Get lucky!

OMG, You Have No Idea How Hard It Is to Get Book of Mormon Tickets – Your Last Best Chance? Daily Ticket Lottery

Monday, November 19th, 2012

This is it.

This is the biggest Broadway roadshow to hit town since forever.

Book of Mormon will play at our Curran Theatre from November 27th to December 30th 2012 and then it will be gone.

There is no way that the run of this smash musical comedy will be extended as the BoM crew will start up in Portland the day after New Year’s.

So here’s what you need to know:

1. This thing is going to be huge – everybody’s going to be talking about it. You know, because it’s ”the best musical of this century” per the New York Times ‘n stuff.

2. You want to go to this show whether you know it or not, even if you’re not into Broadway. Yes, Book of Mormon is profane, but it’s also “an atheist’s love letter to religion.”

3. Tickets are beyond sold out. So the scalpers and the scam artists are going to have a field day.

Check it, from the craigslist:

So that’s hundreds of dollars per seat for tickets what originally cost way less than $100.

So here’s what you do, you show up at the box office on Geary two hours early and enter the lottery.

At $29 a ticket for the winners, this is a steal.

If you don’t want to go through this kind of hassle  day after day, then don’t do it because you are not a true fan,  (The  SHN / BoM people are making you jump through hoops for a reason, don’t you know.)

Now I’ll tell you, when they did this for Rent, back in the day, they lotteried away the two front rows for $19 a piece.

Good times.

Of course the angle was sort of ridiculous and you would see things you weren’t meant to see, but this was quite nice for students of the theatre.

(I don’t know which seats lottery winners will get – they might not get to sit right up front.)

So, have at it.

You Can’t Win If Don’t Play.

Our Schools Win Too.*

PRE-SHOW LOTTERY ANNOUNCED! THE BOOK OF MORMON Lottery Ticket Policy:

THE BOOK OF MORMON will conduct a pre-show lottery at the box office, making a limited number of tickets available at $29 apiece; cash only. This lottery will be held prior to every performance.

Entries will be accepted at the SHN Curran Theatre box office beginning two hours prior to each performance; each person will print their name and the number of tickets (1 or 2) they wish to purchase on a card that is provided. One and a half hours 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. Cards are checked for duplication prior to drawing. Winners must be present at the time of the drawing and show valid ID to purchase tickets. Limit one entry per person and two tickets per winner. Tickets are subject to availability.

Nine 2011 Tony Awards® say it’s the Best Musical of the Year. Vogue says, “It’s the funniest musical of all time.” And The New York Times says, “It’s the best musical of this century.” It’s THE BOOK OF MORMON, the Broadway phenomenon from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-creator Robert Lopez. The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart calls it “A crowning achievement. So good, it makes me angry.” Contains explicit language.

SHN has no way of validating, or replacing tickets that have been purchased through any website other than shnsf.com. We cannot seat or refund you for an invalidated ticket.

If you have any questions, please call 1-888-746-1799 before purchasing.

*Oh, that’s just a saying – our schools won’t actually win.

San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) Launches Family Membership Program for $150 Per Year

Thursday, September 29th, 2011

I’m going to raise my kids rocker so I’m not so sure about the “Mods Club” for children ages 4-12, but, otherwise, family membership from our San Francisco Museum of Modern Art looks like a good deal:

“NEW FAMILY MEMBERSHIP DEEPENS SFMOMA’S COMMITMENT TO FAMILIES

On October 1, 2011, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) will launch a new membership program designed to enhance opportunities for families to engage with the museum and its growing family community. The Family membership includes exclusive viewing hours and unlimited admission for two adult cardholders as well as two adult guests and all accompanying children age 17 and younger. From families looking for hands-on fun at SFMOMA Family Sundays to art aficionado parents wanting to inspire a lifelong appreciation of the arts in their children, households of all shapes and sizes can enjoy the benefits of the new membership.

The comprehensive and flexible membership structure encourages family visits and ensures that everyone in the family can take advantage of SFMOMA’s offerings. With a Family membership, children ages 4 to 12 can join the Mods Club, SFMOMA’s club for kids, and visit the museum with an adult caregiver for free; teens 17 and under receive their own membership card and can visit independently with a friend; and parents may invite grandparents, an aunt and uncle, or two friends for a museum visit any time. Exclusive Family member viewing hours every month provide space for families with young children in strollers or who want to experience the museum with other like-minded, art-loving families.

In the past year, SFMOMA has deepened its longstanding commitment to families by offering expanded resources and programming designed specifically for family visitors. With the support of seed grants from The Wallace Foundation, the museum created an animated, interactive mobile tour for families; created printed and online activity guides that focus on key artists in the museum’s collection; and, as of July 2011, began hosting family programs every Sunday. SFMOMA Family Sundays offer museumwide activities, including hands-on projects, docent-led family gallery tours, book readings, and film screenings linked to SFMOMA’s collection and special exhibitions. Led by SFMOMA educators and guest artists, Family Sundays are designed to encourage experimentation and creativity and to develop critical thinking skills. Families will have free, unlimited access to these entertaining and educational programs with the new Family membership.

Just saying. The dragnet is closing in, it would appear…

San Francisco Police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying three suspects who kidnapped and sexually assaulted a woman at approximately 3:30am on August 7, 2010.

The 25 year old victim was standing at Van Ness and California at 3:30am on August 7, 2010, when she was approached by three men driving in a black VW Golf, hatchback-style vehicle. The victim agreed to a ride with the suspects, back to her hotel in the South of Market area. As the victim attempted to get out of the vehicle, one of the men pulled her back in the car as the driver sped off. The victim was dragged for a short distance, driven to a remote area near Cesar Chavez and the 101 Freeway and sexually assaulted. The victim suffered injuries to her feet, legs and neck. She was treated for her injuries and released. 

The three suspects told the victim that they were from San Jose and were celebrating one of the men’s 18th birthday.

The victim was able to assist in creating a sketch for two of the suspects. They are described as:

1. “Oscar“, Hispanic male, 18-25 yrs., 5’6″, 145 lbs., wearing dark baseball hat, black “Ed Hardy” shirt with lettering across neck.

2. “Johnny“, HM, 5’7″, 150 lbs., dark fade-like haircut, wearing olive green buttoned shirt

3. Unknown, HM, 21-22, heavy set, with dark wavy hair (driver of vehicle)

Vehicle description:

2002-2005, BLACK, VW Golf, 4-dr., hatchback.

Police are seeking assistance from the public, who may be able to identify these suspects or who may have information regarding this incident. Police encourage anyone who believes that they have been the victim of a sexual assault to report it to the police or respond to the San Francisco Rape Treatment Center located at San Francisco General Hospital as soon as possible. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sexual Assault Unit, Inspector Sidney Laws or Lt. Dan Leydon at 553-1361.
