The popularity of the Tony Award-winning musical has left fans trying to score tickets through the lottery system. Since Mormon brings in overwhelming amounts of people at the pre-show lottery, a special "Fan Day" performance was offered by the musical, giving special lottery players a chance to finally see The Book of Mormon free of charge.
Here, Tony Award winner Robert Lopez, a co-creator on The Book of Mormon, says thanks to the fans waiting in line before the performance, and in return the fans share their excitement about winning tickets to "Fan Day."
Mormon, by Emmy Award-winning “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q Tony Award winner Lopez, follows the two Mormons as they venture from Salt Lake City to AIDS-ravaged Uganda in the hopes of converting villagers with the story of Joseph Smith and the founding of the Mormon Church. The problem is only one of them has actually read the book.
