SuperbTicketsOnline.com keeps Iowa theater fans happy with a plentiful stock of Book of Mormon tickets for the Des Moines run of the production.
Milwaukee, WI (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
When most people think of Iowa, they think of the state as a big cornfield with little else in the landscape. Des Moines, the capital, bucks that stereotype with its myriad theaters and performing arts centers, and its vibrant theater culture is purchasing Book of Mormon tickets at a terrific rate as a demonstration of their theater savvy. Not only is the city a cultural hub today, but it also was a key stop on the vaudeville circuit. With the many comedy performers who went through Iowa, it created a culture that can appreciate the antics of two Mormon missionaries and their misadventures in Africa.
Back at the turn of the twentieth century, hundreds of acts passed through the city's gates, many of them from Iowa itself. Charles Gaylor, who grew up on a farm outside of Des Moines, made his name as a contortionist across the country. Another Iowan, Dr. Norman Baker, made his name as a mentalist before being arrested as a fraud.
Perhaps the Cherry Sisters can claim the title as the most infamous of the vaudeville act to come out of Iowa. The four sisters were billed as the worst act on the circuit, singing off-key and dancing ineptly. Vegetables were regularly thrown at them, and they eventually had to perform behind an iron screen. Nevertheless, they played to sold out audiences who enjoyed laughing at the hapless group, and today, when they watch the story of Elder Price and his hapless sidekick, Elder Cunningham, make their way through Uganda, the same kind of laughter fills the auditorium.
When Trey Parker and Matt Stone's musical hits the stage at the Des Moines Civic Center, the ghosts of all the performers who've passed through the city will be cheering them on. The prospect of one of the best musicals in recent years has great attraction for this theater city, and the run is sure to sell out as word of mouth spreads.
