'Book of Mormon' announces day-of-show ticket drawing

The much-anticipated Chicago company of the hit Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon" has its first preview performance tonight at the Bank of America Theatre, 18 W. Monroe St.

Nic Rouleau and Ben Platt star, along with Stephanie Umoh and James Vincent Meredith.

Tickets are sold out. However, day-of-show ticket information finally was released Tuesday.

According to the producers, the Chicago production will follow the Broadway model, with $25 tickets released each day.  The procedure is as follows: those who want tickets go to the box office any time after it opens that day and fill out a card, which is provided. One can request either one or two tickets. Two hours before curtain, a random drawing is made. Cards are "checked for duplication" prior to the drawing.

You have to be present at the drawing to get the tickets. In New York, that has resulted in large crowds of people present at the theater at the time of the drawing.

The number of tickets available through this procedure has not been announced, beyond the word "limited."

"The Book of Mormon" opens officially on Dec. 19.
