DENVER (CBS4) – The hit musical “The Book of Mormon” opened its first national tour in Denver, and it’s coming back this fall.
Last August “The Book of Mormon” was the hot ticket. The show sold out in four hours. Because of that one of Broadway’s biggest all-time hits is back.
On Broadway “The Book of Mormon” won nine Tony Awards and had lines of ticket hopefuls wrapped around the block every night. When it opened in Denver at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House, the national tour grabbed all kinds of attention. It sold out in hours and did so well that the two stars were tapped for the London opening.
Denver only got the musical for three weeks last time in the smaller theater, but on Oct. 22 “The Book of Mormon” returns in the bigger Buell Theater for a five-week run.
Subscribers have had their shot at tickets, but plenty remain for the general public. Tickets for the return engagement go on sale Monday, June 10 at 10 a.m. on the phone, online, or in person at Denver Center ticketing. Tickets begin at $35, but those will go fast.
American Express card members can take advantage of a deal where they can buy tickets starting Wednesday, June 5 at 10 a.m. That’s an online buy only.
“The Book of Mormon” plays the Buell Theater from Tuesday, Oct. 22 to Sunday, Nov. 24.
