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.*

Today is Your Day to Get Tickets for Book of Mormon at the SHN Curran Theatre – American Express Only – 10AM Start

Wednesday, September 12th, 2012

The Book of Mormon, the so-called “best musical of this century,” is coming to town November 27 – December 30th, 2012 at our SHN Curran Theatre on Geary in Union Square.

This thing is going to sell out with extreme prejudice due to:

1. All those recent Tony awards, including Best Musical 2011;

2. Extremely good reviews;

3. A relatively small theatre (The Curran is big but the Orpheum and the Golden Gate are bigger); and

4.  A short, five-week engagement – this show will bug out of here for Portlandia on Dec. 30th, 2012 NO MATTER WHAT, no extensions

And for the first time in my life, I can articulate a reason to have an AMEX card. The remaining decent-priced good seats at (those not already promised to SHN Members) will get sold today starting at 10:00 AM.

Choose or lose…
