The Book of Mormon tour was met with pure joy when it first visited ASU Gammage in November 2015. Sales set a venue record, then broke it in week two. Tickets for the return engagement through Sunday, May 28, went on sale a year and a half ago. At press time, a small handful remain at $50 to $105. Verified resale tickets top out at more than $500 each.
What ignited this popularity is a deeply funny, charming, relatable musical about some missionaries and some Ugandans. It smacked Broadway with a haymaker from which it has yet to recover.
Showtime on Wednesday, May 24, is 7:30 p.m. at 1200 South Forest Avenue in Tempe.
Like your initial happy hour drink,
