Broadway's The Book of Mormon: Free Fan Performance!
The Book of Mormon, Broadway‘s smash hit and winner of nine Tony Awards including Best Musical, gave its ultimate fans the ultimate treat on Friday (July 1) in NYC — free tickets to a special performance.
Winners from a special lottery were emailed to pick up their tickets this morning, although some fans arrived as early as midnight to make sure they got the best seats. Before the show began, show creator Robert Lopez joked, “As a special treat, we are going to do Avenue Q first!” (Robert also created that multiple-Tony winning show.)
The highlight of today’s performance, which was met with thunderous and sustained applause, was when stars Rory O’Malley and Andrew Rannells sang the hysterical show-stopper, “Turn It Off.” (Both are pictured here with co-star Josh Gad.)
With some fans previously waiting in the ticket lottery line for the hit show over 15 times, today’s free performance was the perfect way to start the holiday weekend.
