Tickets for "Mormon" in Tampa on Aug. 17

   It's still six months until "The Book of Mormon" returns to Tampa, but lots of people are already excited about exciting to see it again.
   That's why it's probably a good idea to get your tickets very early. Single tickets for the general public go on sale at noon Aug. 17. The two-week run of the show starts Jan. 20 at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. Prices for those tickets haven't been announced, though. (Tickets for groups and for Straz Center members are already on sale.) Regularly priced single tickets will run between $38.50 and $163.50, plus service charge.
   "The Book of Mormon," which sprung from the minds of the creators of "South Park" and "Avenue Q," has been famously called "the best musical of this century," and it lives up to the hype. It's fresh and hilarious and its songs are great. It won the Tony Award (and just about every other major theater award) for Best Musical and its cast recording won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Lots of theater aficionados think it's the best musical they've ever seen.
   It's not for the easily offended, though, so even though it's ultimately positive, you might not want to bring the kids or Grandma.
   You can get tickets by calling 813-229-7827 or
