Individual "Book of Mormon" tickets available Sunday

   There hasn't been so much excitement about a Broadway musical coming to town in a long, long time.
   "The Book of Mormon," the universally acclaimed show that prominent critics have called "the best musical of this century" and "heaven on Broadway," opens its two-week run at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa on Nov. 12. Season subscribers got first dibs on tickets, but at least at the moment there are plenty left for people who want to see just this show.
   Individual tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 25. And actually, if you have an American Express card
"The Book of Mormon"
, you can buy tickets starting today and up until 9:59 a.m. Friday.

   Tickets are $69-$153.50 plus service charge. You get them by calling 813-229-7827, by going to or by going in person to the Straz Center box office. The Straz Center is at 1010 N. MacInnes Place in Tampa.
   "The Book of Mormon," which comes from the same team that created TV's "South Park," won nine Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Score (Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone), Best Book (Parker, Lopez and Stone) and Best Direction (Casey Nicholaw and Parker).
    Straz Center officials are expecting this show to sell out, and sell out fast, so you're advised to get your tickets soon if you don't want to be left out.
