The Book of Mormon is coming back to Denver!
Denver Center Attractions.
Remember The Book of Mormon? The musical from Coloradans and Broadway darlings Matt Stone and Trey Parker flew through here just last summer, electrifying Denver audiences, or at least the folks who were lucky to snag its fast-disappearing tickets. But if you missed it the first time around, here's your chance to try, try again: Denver Center Attractions announced this morning that Mormon will return to Denver this fall for a run from October 22 through November 24 at the Buell Theatre. Tickets go on sale to subscription holders first, on April 8; public ticket sales will follow at a later date, to be determined.
The full press release follows:
Back by popular demand, The Book of Mormon, which played a record-breaking three-week run in the fall of 2012 will return for a limited engagement October 22-November 24 at the Buell Theatre. Subscribers to the 2013/14 Denver Center Attractions season will have first access to purchase tickets to the return of The Book of Mormon on April 8. A public on sale date is to be determined.
The Book of Mormon features book, music and lyrics by Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone.
