The Book of Mormon, the Tony Award-winning smash by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, is the hottest Broadway musical coming to South Florida in the 2013-2014 season.
It plays the Broward Center for the Performing Arts Nov. 26-Dec. 22, but many of those tickets are spoken for by subscribers. Other fans get their shot on Monday, when single tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. at the box office at 201 SW Fifth Ave., Fort Lauderdale or by calling 954-462-0222.
The show is about Mormon missionaries who wind up in Africa and find their ministry way wilder than expected. Performances are 8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 1 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday (with some exceptions). Tickets, including fees, range from $52.51 to $182.31.
Fans of the performing arts can do more than buy tickets on the new website recently rolled out by the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
ArshtCenter.org features videos, pictures and other information about upcoming performances and artists; shows views of the stage from every section of the Knight Concert Hall and Ziff Ballet Opera House; allows users to print tickets at home and buy, send or redeem online gift certificates, and integrates with Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.
Using information from previous searches, the site will also suggest performances a user might enjoy or point out chances to donate to certain programs.
Future upgrades are set to include a “My Account” section, live customer service chats, mobile ticket purchasing, paperless tickets and online ticket exchanges.
