I just thought I'd update:
I was the poster enquiring about the lottery a few weeks ago - well I went to the Wednesday matinee draw over easter and I won!
I completely overreacted when they read my name out and probably scared alot of the other people there, but I never win anything so I was shocked!
There was probably around 80-100 people there but the queue was bigger for the evening performance
I've never sat front row for a show before and it was incredible!
BOM is fast becoming one of my favourite musicals

Congrats on winning JaszyR91 - I never win anything either and my BOM lottery attempts (3 times) have not changed that - LOL. If I want to get to see this show I will have to stump up the cash methinks and book ahead.  What are the back of the stalls and circle seats like for £50 anyone? I usually prefer to be much further forward.

I think the sightlines are pretty good from most seats, the only thing you'd miss from the back stalls is the spinning statue of Moroni at the top of the proscenium arch, but that's not vital to the show.
I'm not sure whether they'd be worth £50 though.

That's the price of them though.  :(

I do have issues with some of the humour. It was unnecessary to repeat the maggots line so many times and I thought they could have cut down on the amount of issues they reference. Yet I was not dissapointed with the songs, the musical moved at a jaunty pace, and the cast was marvelous

Low Full Price

Theatremonkey has some comments on which of the back seats are better value.

I booked long in advance, was really looking forward to it, saw it just after it opened, really enjoyed it, and would have booked again immediately if I could have afforded it.

Now, even though I could afford it, I can't be bothered.

I'm not saying it was over-hyped or that it wasn't as good as I expected, but I've just lost interest.

I know what you mean Steve. I saw this during previews and loved it. Would have gone again straight away if there was a way to get affordable tickets. I tried the lottery (and lost) but for me this just isn't an option I am willing to go for often. Most other shows I love to watch do day seats and if I fail to win the Mormon lottery it's usually too late to get day seats for anything else which means I'm then stuck with TKTS (which is more expensive).

I would love to see this again but with shows like Once, Bodyguard and Singin' in the rain (to name just a few) offering day seats I've got too many other shows I enjoy just as much and for which it is easier to get great and affordable seats.
I could afford paying full price for Mormon now and then but I've already done that once and as much as I like the show I don't tend to pay more than £35 at the very most for return visits.

I saw this last night and it was stunning, Gavin and Jared are brilliant as are the rest of the cast. The script and songs are funny and relevant and it is just the perfect night at the theatre for some light entertainment!!. I sat Last row of the circle and i honestly can say the view was excellent! An amazing rake means you see the whole stage uninterrupted and no ones head is in front. The seat backs are big and comfortable with plenty of legroom, i would honestly consider these seats in a heartbeat, maybe not worth £50 but definitely £35 plus.

Has anyone sat in the stalls seats that are reduced by the sound desk ? seats S21 and S28 or  T21 - they are slightly cheaper and say " moderately restricted due to wall of sound desk ?
