Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Love Never Dies” will take the Des Moines Civic Center stage Oct. 16–21 as the first production in the 2018-2019 Willis Broadway Series. Single tickets to “Love Never Dies” are on sale now and can be purchased at DMPA.org, the Civic Center Ticket Office, and by phone at 515-246-2300.
The new touring production will reflect an extensive re-working of the material by an Australian creative team for the original Australian premiere in 2011. Directed by Simon Phillips with new set and costume designs by Gabriela Tylesova, choreography by 2011 Astaire Awards winner Graeme Murphy, lighting design by Nick Schlieper and sound design by Mick Potter, the show is one of the few instances of a major West End musical being given a complete makeover for subsequent productions.
Since its premiere in 2010,”Love Never Dies” has enjoyed productions worldwide in London, Australia, Denmark, Japan and Germany, as well as multiple recordings including a concept album and a London cast recording. A DVD release of the Australian production has delighted fans globally, and now the North American tour brings the musical to the U.S. for the first time.
