A long line stretched outside of the Orpheum Theatre in downtown Minneapolis Friday afternoon as fans got their first crack at tickets for the touring production of the controversial Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon," WCCO-TV reports.

Anna Pitera with Hennepin Theatre Trust told WCCO that she anticipates all 16 performances of the musical -- set to run Feb. 5-17 -- to sell out. The show is reportedly still playing to standing room only crowds in New York.

"The Book of Mormon," which won the Tony Award for Best Musical in 2011, was co-written by "South Park" creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

It's been a long wait for fans wanting tickets to the musical. The Hennepin Theatre Trust announced last January that "The Book of Mormon" was on its 2013 slate, along other high-profile productions including "War Horse" and "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," the Star Tribune reports.
