Acclaimed Tony Award winning musical “The Book of Mormon” is coming to Philly’s Forrest Theatre this summer and tickets are about to go on sale. Starting March 16 at 10 a.m., you can snag seats for the show at www.telecharge.com or by calling 800-447-7400. Bringing a group? Call 866-276-2947 or 215-790-5883 if you need 15 tickets or more.
The theater (1114 Walnut St.) will start selling tickets from the box office on June 30, but based on how popular “Mormon” has been during its Broadway run we’re willing to bet they’ll be long gone by then.
“South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone wrote the musical with Robert Lopez, co-creator of the Broadway hit “Avenue Q.” It’s choreographed by Tony winner Casey Nicholaw, whose credits include “Monty Python’s Spamalot,” and directed by Nicholaw and Parker.
The soundtrack is available if you want to get a sneak peek of the songs, but we’re recommending you see it fresh — why get any spoilers to all those hysterical jokes?
