Des Moines Civic Center | Des Moines, Iowa
The most obvious difference between live musicals and the cinema is the immediacy. Movies are edited and cut to perfection, whereas at the theatre, the actors are really in the room with you. In a weird way, the possibility that things can go wrong at any moment is really kind of exciting, and something you can ONLY get at the theater. Normally, things go to plan and a successful performance seems absolutely amazing; pulling it off with no hiccups provides a palpable release of tension for both the actors and the audience, which only adds to the excitement. So why not come to the Des Moines Civic Center and watch one of the shows that has been taking the nation by storm, the incredible TINA – The Tina Turner Musical, live?!
