The buzz around The Book of Mormon—the multi-Tony Award-winning musical by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, and Robert Lopez—was intense. Tickets went on sale March 20, and at the Morrison Center box office, scores of hopefuls lined up for a chance at tickets. The people in line were theatergoers of all stripes, as well as people who had never seen a Broadway play before. The Book of Mormon traveling show came to the City of Trees as part of the Morrison Center's popular Broadway in Boise program and, in the end, all six performance, July 21- 26, sold out in less than two hours.
