A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder      2/7/2016 1:00:00 PM
515-246-2300
Des Moines Civic Center, Des Moines
Getting away with murder can be so much fun… and there’s no better proof than the hilarious hit show that won the 2014 Tony Award® for BEST MUSICAL: A GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE TO LOVE & MURDER! Coming direct from New York, where a most gentlemanly NPR critic said he’d “NEVER LAUGHED SO HARD AT A BROADWAY MUSICAL," GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE tells the uproarious story of Monty Navarro, a distant heir to a family fortune who sets out to jump the line of succession, by any means necessary. All the while, he’s got to juggle his mistress (she’s after more than just love), his fiancée (she’s his cousin but who’s keeping track?), and the constant threat of landing behind bars! Of course, it will all be worth it if he can slay his way to his inheritance… and be done in time for tea. The Hollywood Reporter raves, “GENTLEMAN’S GUIDE RESTORES OUR FAITH IN MUSICAL COMEDY” and The New York Times cheers, “IT WILL LIFT THE HEARTS OF ALL THOSE WHO’VE BEEN PINING FOR WHAT SOMETIMES SEEMS A LOST ART FORM.” Kindly get your tickets now for the new musical that will have you dying with laughter!

Topics include relationships, dating, parenting and family life, and there will be a chance to ask for free relationship advice as Pat and Karen answer questions from the audience. Bring your sweetheart, bring your friends and bring your sense of humor for an evening of laughter ever after.

515-246-2300
Des Moines Civic Center, Des Moines
Peter and the Wolf is the most beloved children’s classic in all of music and the very best way to introduce your child or grandchild to the wonder of hearing a live symphony orchestra. Join Joseph Giunta and the Des Moines Symphony in our fifth annual collaborative Family Concert as we transform the Civic Center into a live version of Prokofiev’s famous musical story. The orchestra brings each character to life: the flute as a bird, the oboe as a duck, the bassoon as the grandfather, and the French horns as the wolf.
