‘Mormon’ Tickets Soar to $487 as Satire Breaks Broadway Records

Hours after “The Book of Mormon” walked off with nine Tony Awards including best musical, Broadway’s biggest new hit set a record with a top ticket price of $487.25.

That’s what it will cost for a prime orchestra seat bought within 48 hours of a performance, including service charges, according to, which handles the show’s ticket sales. That price tops the $480 premium ticket introduced by “The Producers” in 2001. (Factoring in inflation, that $480 ticket would cost $612 today.)
