Latest Des Moines Reviews

BWW Review: HAMILTON at Des Moines Performing Arts Photo BWW Review: HAMILTON at Des Moines Performing Arts
by DC Felton - May 22, 2022

One of the great things about theatre is the stories it allows us to tell. It doesn't seem like it would work when you first hear the story 'Hamilton' and how it is being told. The show has proved that wrong since 2015 since it took New York and then the country by storm. When it first came to Des M...
BWW Review: TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS at Tallgrass Theatre Company Photo BWW Review: TINY BEAUTIFUL THINGS at Tallgrass Theatre Company
by DC Felton - May 10, 2022

Some of the best moments are when a small decision significantly impacts our lives. One of the great parts of being in theatre is how it can tap into those small decisions and deliver a show that can touch on the impact of those decisions. Tallgrass Theatre Company's production of 'Tiny Beautiful Th...
BWW Review: GIRL'S WEEKEND 2: THE BACHELORETTE PARTY at Iowa Stage Photo BWW Review: GIRL'S WEEKEND 2: THE BACHELORETTE PARTY at Iowa Stage
by DC Felton - May 08, 2022

With theatre coming back, one of the most exciting parts is seeing new shows hit the stage that were developed entirely or in part during the pandemic. Seeing a new play even more exciting is when a local playwright writes it. So when Iowa Stage announced they would be doing the world premiere of 'G...
BWW Review: PIPPI LONGSTOCKING at Kate Goldman Children's Theatre Photo BWW Review: PIPPI LONGSTOCKING at Kate Goldman Children's Theatre
by DC Felton - April 30, 2022

Growing up, one of my favorite movies to rent from our local library was about a strong girl named Pippi Longstocking, which was short for Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's Daughter Longstocking. So when Des Moines Playhouse announced it would be part of their 2021-2022 season,...
BWW Review: AURA at Ankeny Community Theatre Photo BWW Review: AURA at Ankeny Community Theatre
by DC Felton - April 04, 2022

Stories can be told in many ways. Sometimes they are told verbally from person to person. Other times, such as in a show, they can be told in the pieces of set being used or through other technical elements. Ankeny Community Theatre is stretching its storytelling muscles with its current production ...
BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN at Des Moines Playhouse Photo BWW Review: SINGIN' IN THE RAIN at Des Moines Playhouse
by DC Felton - April 02, 2022

On March 14, 2020, after only two performances, Des Moines Playhouse made the difficult decision to postpone their spring production of “Singin’ In the Rain.” At the time, they didn’t realize that COVID-19 would force them to cancel their show. I was fortunate enough to attend the second performance...
BWW Review: LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO THE NIGHT at Iowa Stage Photo BWW Review: LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO THE NIGHT at Iowa Stage
by DC Felton - March 30, 2022

As actors, designers, directors, we can't help but find a little of ourselves in the work we do. It's what makes theatre so special. We open our hearts for people to see, live. Now imagine, if you will, that you are a playwright. Imagine writing something so personal that you refuse to have it publi...
BWW Review: HADESTOWN at Des Moines Performing Arts Photo BWW Review: HADESTOWN at Des Moines Performing Arts
by DC Felton - March 24, 2022

Theatre is a form of storytelling. Sometimes a show tells a new story, and other times it takes a familiar one and gives it a new spin. 'Hadestown,' which opened on March 22 at Des Moines Performing Arts, does the latter in its retelling of the Greek story of Orpheus and Eurydice. The question going...
BWW Review: NEXT TO NORMAL at Carousel Theatre Of Indianola Photo BWW Review: NEXT TO NORMAL at Carousel Theatre Of Indianola
by DC Felton - March 21, 2022

Every so often, a show comes out that asks its audience to take a look at something they may feel uncomfortable discussing. When care is taken, it can make for a powerful and thought-provoking production that evokes a dialogue to happen following the show. One of those shows is 'Next to Normal,' whi...
BWW Review: CHARLOTTE'S WEB at Kate Goldman Children's Theatre Photo BWW Review: CHARLOTTE'S WEB at Kate Goldman Children's Theatre
by DC Felton - March 19, 2022

One of the great things about children's theatre is that it brings some of our favorite stories from growing up to life on the stage. This also sparks children's imagination to dig into the books they are based on. Des Moines Playhouse is sparking the imagination of this generation and encouraging t...
