Given that demand for Book of Mormon tickets was so high when they first went on sale back in February that the Kennedy Center’s website crashed for two whole days, you might be under the impression that the only tickets harder to come by are passes to a White House event when your name is Salahi. But not so! Below, some ways to see the show the New York Times described as “blasphemous, scurrilous, and more foul-mouthed than David Mamet on a blue streak.”
1) Get in line. A few $25 standing room-only tickets will be available at the box office from 10 AM Tuesday through Saturday and from noon on Sunday. It’s advisable to arrive earlier than that, since lines will presumably be lengthy. Tickets are limited to two per person.
2) Call the box office or check the Kennedy Center’s website. Hard as it may be to believe, there are still a small number of limited-view and premium seats available, and the best way to find out is to call 202-467-4600 and ask.
3) Go to websites such as StubHub, where scalped tickets are plentiful. They’re also slightly less expensive now than they were a month or so ago, as people get more eager to unload them. Single tickets for tonight’s performance, for example, start at $150—which sounds like a lot but is considerably less than people were shelling out to see the show on Broadway—and there are tickets to other performances for under $100. Obviously, we should note that we do not condone scalping here at Washingtonian HQ.
And whatever you do, don’t forget to check back in tomorrow, when we’ll be posting our review here at After Hours.
