The stage for Book of Mormon The stage is set for the Book of Mormon at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York

The Book of Mormon! Finally won the ticket lottery!

Last night I saw the Book of Mormon at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. I won the rush tickets for $32 each through the lottery that they hold 2 hours before the show.

I don’t know much about the middle of the country except that it is very flat and there is a lot more space with less people. Though I have spent some time on the West Coast, I mostly know New York City and the East Coast. I moved to Singapore from the US in January 2013.
