SuperbTicketsOnline.com has announced that it has released The Book of Mormon tickets for each of the touring production’s shows taking place in Pittsburgh. There will be shows every day from March 26 to April 7 with the exception of a dark day on April 1. Performances will take place every evening, and matinees are scheduled on all four weekend days that take place within that time frame.
The beautiful Benedum Center for the Performing Arts will play host to each of these shows. The historic facility was known as the Stanley Theatre from its opening in 1912 until it was renovated and renamed in 1987. It was a movie palace before transitioning into a concert venue and then settling into its current status as a performing arts venue. Bob Marley’s final live performance was here in 1980. One of the most impressive features of the current facility is its beautiful 4,700-pound chandelier.
This popular musical opened on Broadway in March 2011 and is starting to extend its reach across the United States and into the United Kingdom. The first national tour started with a series of previews in August in Denver before officially opening in Los Angeles on Sept. 12. It has also played in Chicago since Dec. 11 and will be there through Sept. 8. It will be performed in Detroit prior to visiting Pittsburgh. After that engagement, the tour group travels to Boston.
The musical dominated the 2011 Tony Awards with 14 nominations and nine winners. It won the coveted Best Musical award at that year’s event as it edge out “Catch Me If You Can,” “Sister Act” and “The Scottsboro Boys” for the nod. The outstanding show also earned Outstanding Musical accolades at the Drama Desk Awards that year. It earned 12 nominations and five winners at that awards show. The cast recording of the Broadway production won the Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album in 2012 as well.
