The Book of Mormon opened in 2011 to ecstatic reviews.
The New York Times hailed the show as “the best musical of this century.”
It's gone on to win nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
The show was created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the five-time Emmy Award-winning creators of South Park, and Robert Lopez, two-time Academy Award winner for Best Original Songs.
How Much Does It Cost To See The Book of Mormon On Broadway?
Tickets are on sale through Broadway Direct.
Regular-priced tickets usually start from about $77 for mezzanine seating and can reach $150 for premium seating, depending on the day of the week.
Sometimes StubHub and Ticketmaster offer somewhat cheaper tickets or better seats for the same price as Broadway Direct, so why not take a look?
The Book of Mormon runs a digital lottery where you can enter online to win up to two $45 tickets.
Go to the lottery website. You will need to create an online account (it is free to do so).
Both evening performances and matinees are listed. Select the dates you would like to see the show.
You can enter the lottery for all performances listed.
Lottery entries are accepted until 10 a.m. on the day before the performance. Winners are drawn at 11 a.m. that same day.
If you are selected, you must purchase your tickets by 3 p.m. the day before the performance online with a credit card.
You can purchase up to two (2) tickets.
Seat locations are determined at the discretion of the box office.
While every effort is made to keep seats together, pairs may be split up.
Please note that lottery seats may have a partially obstructed view of the stage.

Some shows have an in-person lottery at the theater box office but currently, The Book of Mormon does not.
Our detailed post on Broadway ticket lotteries goes over how they work, and which shows offer them.
For sold-out shows, there may be a very slim possibility of standing-room-only tickets.
Contact the Eugene O'Neill Theatre box office at (212) 840-0479 for more information.
It can't hurt to check Goldstar or Groupon to see if they are selling discount tickets for The Book of Mormon.
Many NYC tourist discount passes offer savings on certain Broadway shows, such as Hamilton.
- The New York Pass can save you up to 10% off the full price on specific Broadway shows.
- The Sightseeing Pass and The Sightseeing Flex Pass get you $20 off tickets.
Whether or not these discounts are worth a lot depends on what full-price tickets are going for.
There are, of course, other benefits to purchasing a tourist pass.
The biggest benefit is that you can save quite a bit of money. Some of these passes can save you as much as 55% on the attractions you plan to visit in NYC.
Our post, New York City Attraction Passes: Which One Is the Best to Buy, can help you decide if a pass is right for you.
Student and Military Discounts
Some shows offer discounted tickets to members of the military and students. It's always good to check the show's FAQ page to confirm.
When available, both discounts are typically for Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday evening performances.
