Jay Leno

September 13, 2015

Love him or hate him, the hugely controversial Leno followed in the footsteps of legendary NBC late-night hosts Steve Allen, Jack Paar and Johnny Carson as the host of the Emmy Award-winning and top-rated "The Tonight Show," until his last show in 2014. You would think that he would be eager for some downtime - instead, he continues to hone his sharp, good humored roasting and standup skills at engagements across the country, often exceeding 300 dates per year!

Kansas City Ballet: The Nutcracker

December 5-24, 2015

See why Todd Bolender's The Nutcracker is Kansas City's favorite holiday entertainment, as soon as the curtain rises and you experience the breathtaking sights and sounds - a magically growing Christmas tree, dazzling costumes and scenery, stunning choreography and dozens of beautiful dancers, all synchronised with Tschaikovsky's score played live by the Kansas City Symphony.

Cirque Dreams: Holidaze

star 1star 2star 3star 4star 5

December 29-30, 2015

Ornaments come to life when Cirque Dream: Holidaze's costumed characters perform astonishing feats that celebrate the holiday season with spectacle, imagination and whimsical dreams. Marvel at gingerbread men flipping through the air, toy soldiers skillfully marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen sculpting powerfully, penguins spinning, puppets caroling and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment.

A Night with Janis Joplin

March 22-27, 2016

A Night With Janis Joplin has finished its run on Broadway, and is now taking this music icon to various venues around the USA. Janis Joplin's distinctive voice, charisma and public battle with drugs and alcohol made her one of Rock and Roll's most memorable stars, though she was only in the limelight for the final three years of her life.

Ragtime

May 17-22, 2016

Ragtime weaves together the stories of three seperate families in the early 1900s to create a profound portrait of the American experience. Its original 1998 Broadway production garnered 13 Tony nominations and won four, including Best Book and Score.
