Been waiting since 2011…

….and in two weeks the day will finally be here.  We’re finally going to see Book of Mormon here in Chicago.  

Any theater ticket that has “Explicit Language” is okay by me

Almost every single person we know, whether they enjoy musicals or not, has seen this show, and the two who based their wedding on musicals because they love them so much?  Yeah, haven’t gotten around to it just yet.  I finally found a random matinee a month out that had two not-so-high balcony seats with one seat on the aisle and another single one behind it.  We don’t need to talk during the show, so that worked out just fine – and much cheaper than the inflated floor seats (NOT saying it’s not worth it though).

In any case, I have a fear that it won’t live up to my expectations.  And it might not.  It might be like Les Miserables and the two tries we’ve given it now.  But at least we’re fortunate enough to live in the next major city for Broadway theater and Book of Mormon decided to stay here for awhile instead of just a two week engagement.  

And it’s at my least favorite theater of course.  Groan.  But we shall persevere and say “Hello!” to Book of Mormon Chicago soon!

One thought on “Been waiting since 2011…”

  1. Jason & I haven't yet seen this, mostly because we are too chea–err–frugal to spend the hundreds of $$$ to get tickets. But we have time.

    I've managed not to listen to the soundtrack, so I don't really have any expectations other than it being a really good show (which it damn well better be).

    I was also unimpressed with Les Mis when I saw it in Chicago.
