The unthinkable has happened again. “The Book of Mormon” is back on discount.
Once the king of sold out shows, the Tony winning musical seems to have seats available in quantities most nights.
The producers say they’re taking in just over $1 million every week. But looking at ticketmaster.com, there are blue dots every day at all performances– meaning loads of seats.
StubHub.com just sent out discounts for the Saturday, September 14th matinee. But the evening show is pretty empty, too. I also checked several other nights in August and September– all very available.
It may be that “Mormon” has soaked up its audience– 10 years is a long time. Also, tastes change. What seemed funny in 2009 may not be these days. “Mormon” has jokes and songs about raping babies.
Anyway, now is the time to get in there for much less than people were conned into paying years ago– $500, $1000. Ridiculous.
