One of my favorite things about Des Moines, Iowa is the theater scene!!! When I rolled into town about seven months ago, Hamilton was playing!!!! My theater loving friends from St. Louis are so jealous of me because the touring production of the 2018 Tony Musical of the year Dear Evan Hansen is playing in Des Moines!!! It's here until Sunday. It was very heavy. I will say that. It was beautiful and definitely pulls you in a lot of directions. I heard many sniffles in the audience. If you get a chance, go see this play before it closes on Sunday!
Dear Evan Hansen deals with many issues that hit close to home in today's society, mental illness and broken families. There is humor along the way, too. Just go see it! :-)
