'The Book of Mormon' celebrates with giveaway

Associated Press SHARE

NEW YORK (AP) — One of the hardest tickets to get on Broadway could be yours for free — as long as you've got some luck.

The producers of "The Book of Mormon" said Wednesday they'll celebrate the show's anniversary by handing out seats to a free matinee performance on June 6 for whoever survives a ticket lottery.

Starting Wednesday through May 20, all lottery entries, win or lose, will count as one entry in the sweepstakes toward winning tickets for the free show.

The wildly popular musical won nine Tony Awards, including best musical. It already has a ticket lottery that has attracted as many as 600 people at some performances to the 1,066-seat Eugene O'Neill Theatre.
