It’s time for a date night. The husband and I are headed to Fair Park for opening night of The Book of Mormon at the Dallas Summer Musicals.
If you aren’t familiar with The Book of Mormon broadway hit, it’s an award winning show from Trey Parker, Robert Lopez and Matt Stone. Trey and Matt are best known as the creators of South Park. The show won nine Tony Awards and even a Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Needless to say, I’m thinking the show will be pretty amazing.
The Book of Mormon in Dallas
The Book of Mormon is here in Dallas January 29 – February 3 at the Music Hall at Fair Park. Make sure to get your tickets, the last few times the show has been in Dallas tickets were hard to come by!

How Long is The Book of Mormon?
With a toddler at home, it’s always good to know exactly how long we will be gone. The Book of Mormon’s run time is approximately 2 hours 30 minutes. There is one 20 minute intermission.
How Early Should We Arrive?
It is recommended that you arrive 30-45 minutes before call time to allow plenty of time for parking and to get seated. Parking is free, but plan to walk a ways or catch a ride on a free shuttle. There is the option to valet as well.
Skip Dallas Traffic, Take the DART Rail to Fair Park
Traffic increases closer to performance time. Consider riding the Dallas DART Rail. The DART Green Line is a great alternative to driving. The Fair Park Station is just a short walk from outside the gates to the Fair Park Music Hall.
Food and Drinks
What is date night without dinner? No offence to the toddler, but if we can get the grandparents to feed our kid – that’s one less thing to stress. If you are looking for where to grab dinner and drinks for a date night at Dallas Summer Musicals, here are a few options!
The Crystal Terrace Restaurant
Arrive to the Fair Park Music Hall early and enjoy a buffet at the Crystal Terrace, located at the theater. You will most likely want to make reservations to ensure you have a table. Click here to reserve a table.
If you are hungry but not too hungry, you can order a chuttcherie board before the show. Just ask an attendant and you’ll be directed to a table to place your order. You can order drinks and from a menu of a variety of appetizers (their honey and cheese board is amazing!) At intermission, you just head to the Crystal Terrace, give the hostess your name. Since you pre-ordered, a table is setup for you with food and drinks. No waiting, and since you pre-pay – you have just enough time during the 20 minutes intermission to enjoy some food and drinks.
Drinks After the Show
After the show, head across the street to Craft and Growler. Make sure to bring your Dallas Summer Musicals ticket stub because they will give you 50% off your first beer or glass of wine!
