Hamilton is the story of Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant who became George Washington's right-hand man and eventually the first Treasury Secretary. Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote and starred in the musical on Broadway.

Right now, the only way to get a ticket to Hamilton in Des Moines is to buy season tickets. Single show tickets aren't on sale yet.

Adding to the excitement, Des Moines Performing Arts announced the traditional five-show Willis Broadway Series Season Ticket package will increase by one additional show.

“Everyone knows that the gold standard for Broadway is the Tony Award. We continue our tradition of presenting the current Tony Award winners for Best Play, Best Musical and Best Revival of a Musical,” says Jeff Chelesvig, President and CEO of Des Moines Performing Arts. “These exceptional productions don’t find their way to Iowa on their own. It’s the financial support of 4,653 donors, the loyalty of 15,560 season ticket holders, and the passion of this community that makes this programming possible.”

Hamilton will be joined in the Willis Broadway Series by the following shows: Something Rotten!, The Color Purple – 2016 Tony Award Winner for Best Revival of a Musical, Waitress, On Your Feet, and The Humans – 2016 Tony Award Winner for Best Play. Four package add-ons were also announced including: Chicago, Stomp, Les Misérables, and a special one-night only performance of Leslie Odom, Jr.. in concert with the Des Moines Symphony.
