TRIPLE ESPRESSO Launches Des Moines Civic Center Engagement, 11/27

From November 27, 2012 through January 6, 2013, Triple Espresso: A Highly Caffinated Comedy will play the Des Moines Civic Center as part of the Temple Theatre Series. 

Triple Espresso tells the story of three guys whose bid for showbiz fame and fortune ended in 4-minutes of magnificent failure on national television. Hugh Butternut, Buzz Maxwell, and Bobby Bean tell their rags-to-rags story earnestly, with hysterical results. Butternut is a musician, a vulnerable soul with a lounge lizard smile; Maxwell is an uncertain magician with an attitude; and Bean is an irrepressible, all-over-the-map entertainer with big dreams. The laughter is infectious and the comedy appeals to everyone from first graders to college students to baby-boomers to grandparents.
