Finally! Des Moines Performing Arts announced today performance dates for next season - including when the much anticipated performance of "Hamilton: An American Musical" will appear on the Civic Center stage!
Des Moines Performing Arts, a nonprofit organization, scored big last spring with the announcement "Hamilton" will would stop in Des Moines on its first national tour. Des Moines was selected along with cities such as Houston, Portland and San Francisco for that inaugural honor.
"Hamilton" tells the story of Alexander Hamilton and the Founding Fathers, focusing on life before and after the Revolutionary war. Using rap and hip hop, the musical chronicles Hamilton's rise and fall.
