'Book of Mormon' offering another free performance

'The Book of Mormon" will offer a free performance

Scoring tickets to "The Book of Mormon" has become one of the biggest challenges on Broadway, akin to finding seats for "The Lion King" or "The Phantom of the Opera" one or two generations ago.

Producers of "Mormon" said Wednesday that the hit musical will offer a free performance on June 6, with tickets distributed via a lottery system. Entries are accepted at the box office of the Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York.

The free performance will be a 2 p.m. matinee on June 6. Winners will be selected on or around May 21, producers said.  Winners will be notified via email and will be asked to confirm their attendance. (It should give people enough time to put in for a vacation day at work — or at least to come up with a clever excuse to be absent.)

"Mormon" previously offered a free performance on July 1, 2011. The show currently sells a limited number of tickets for each performance through the lottery system. People who enter the daily lottery between Wednesday and May 20 will be automatically entered into the drawing for the free show.

Multiple lottery entries will count multiple times toward the lottery for the free performance.
