The problem: You want to see the nine-time Tony Award® winning Best Musical from the creators of South Park. The show The New York Times calls “the best musical of this century.” And Entertainment Weekly says, “Grade A: the funniest musical of all time.”
Unfortunately, tickets in NYC are sold out for performances through 2027, and if you want to try your luck on the reseller market, you’ll end up paying $4,000 for a ticket in the bathroom. In the basement. Of the diner down the street from the theater.
The solution: The Book of Mormon is touring. The show will be coming to the Forrest Theatre in Philadelphia* from Tuesday, July 29 - Sunday, September 14, 2014.
1) You can buy tickets here. For face value. Like, in the orchestra.
2) Take a bus. Find and compare prices using Wanderu.com (like Kayak for bus tickets). Note: Depending on when you read this, some of the carriers have not released their schedules so far in advance. Keep checking back in the weeks leading up to the date of your selected show.
Or, rent a car. It’s about a two hour drive to Philly from NYC. The hourly car share operators will do. Go with friends. Make a day of it.
Or, take the train.
3) Enjoy the show and make all your friends totally jealous when you tell them you got to see it.
* - While in Philly, you can also pretend to enjoy one of the World’s Most Overrated Sandwiches™.
