SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwired - Jan 17, 2014) - Online ticket marketplace TicketNetwork.com today released its report on ticket sale trends for Q4 2013. Leading the way in the theater category was a production that may have been considered a dark horse when it premiered, but which has since proven to be one of Broadway's biggest attractions.
"This is the first time since its 2011 debut that we've seen The Book of Mormon top theater sales on the marketplace not only for the quarter, but also for the whole year," explained Danielle Metcalf, Operations Manager at TicketNetwork.com.
"While it's been a hot ticket from the start, playing to sold-out audiences on Broadway and its national tour alike, it's surprising how quickly the demand for tickets has outpaced longtime favorites, like Wicked and The Lion King," Metcalf continued. "With its proven appeal among seasoned theatergoers and newcomers alike, it looks like this Book is far from closing!"
