Only one entry per person is allowed for a maximum of two tickets and winners must be present at the time of drawing and show valid ID to purchase tickets.

The battle of the Mormon musicals

Joseph Smith Jr, the American who founded Mormonism, was a man who saw and foresaw much. He saw that the Lord wanted him as his prophet. And he saw that the Lord wished to allow him many wives (“if any man espouse a virgin, and desire to espouse another... then is he justified,” he wrote). And, in an unusual diversion by the Almighty into real estate, Smith saw He wished Smith to have a splendid house (“And now I say unto you... let it be a delightful habitation”). MORE >
