Detroit – Get Ready for The Book of Mormon!
*I received payment in the form of two free tickets in exchange for this post*
I’ve been going to see shows at the theater since I was little. I went and saw Sesame Street when I was a toddler. Every year, with my Girl Scout troop, I went and saw the Rockettes. My first ‘real’ play was Rent. I realized it was playing literally that night and got my mom to buy us tickets. When I was in NYC with my mom, we went and saw the off-broadway show, Altar Boys. Unfortunately, I haven’t had a chance to see anything lately. That is why I’m super excited about The Book of Mormon coming to Detroit!
The Book of Mormon will be in Detroit from November 1st to the 13th at the Fisher Theatre. You can still get tickets! Buy them off Ticket Master or Broadway in Detroit. If you aren’t in Detroit, check Ticket Master to see if it is coming near you! There are still a ton of shows after it leaves Detroit.
Fun fact: the co-creator of The Book of Mormon is the same guy who (with his wife) wrote all the songs for Frozen.
If you’re not too sure what The Book of Mormon is about, here is the summary straight from the site:
“The Book of Mormon follows two young missionaries who are sent to Uganda to try to convert citizens to the Mormon religion. One missionary, Elder Price, is an enthusiastic go-getter with a strong dedication to his faith, while his partner, Elder Cunningham, is a socially awkward but well-meaning nerd whose tendency to embroider the truth soon lands him in trouble. Upon their arrival in Africa, Elders Price and Cunningham learn that in a society plagued by AIDS, poverty and violence, a successful mission may not be as easy as they expected.”
Tickets for The Book of Mormon start at $39 for the show, facility, and parking fees. If you are an avid play/musical goer, you know this is a great price!
