Always a good time

Always good food and an excellent play. I've never been disappointed with an evening spent at the New Theatre.

The renovated theatre was beautiful. We enjoyed the buffet which has several choices including beef, fish and pasta. We saw "Forever Plaid" and were treated to talented individuals who had excellent voices and also incuded comedy. Great show!!

We are generally game for most shows and have relatively moderate expectations because they vary greatly but this experience exceeded even high expectations! We tried everything on the buffet and it was ALL good and flavorful as though in a fine restaurant rather than a Vegas-style set up! The chicken was moist, fried fish was delicate not greasy, Teriyaki salmon... More

We just came from the New Theatre and saw the "new remodel". They made the tables smaller to shove in more tables. We felt like we could hardly move in our chairs it was so tight. I guess they are like the airlines now, shove in as many cattle as possible to improve the bottom line. As 12 year season... More

I have visited dinner theaters and several cities and we have it made here in KC. The quality of the venue, their food, the performances, the guest stars.......I can't say enough good about the place. And they keep the price affordable. Organize a group. Or think of this for your next gift certificate. A real deal.

I have enjoyed the new theatre restaurant on many occasions and it never fails to impress. They recently underwent a extensive remodel and is simply beautiful! There is not a bad seat in the house and buffet style dinner is delectable to the palate, never disappointed. Cost range from 35 to 55$ and includes dinner and show. Beverages and desert... More

We’ve been to a number of shows here over the years, but we recently saw “Forever Plaid” following a major remodel of the facility. Gone are the mannequins coming out of the walls. There’s now a ceiling full of colorful LED lights in the theatre, digital screens which come down over the curtains before the show, and a sleek and... More

This recently remodeled theater is a great place for a fun date. We went here for our anniversary and saw "Forever Plaid"--a fun musical with lots of 50's songs. When I called to get tickets, the woman advised parking in the parking lot in the "back" of the theater on Metcalf. A lot of other people did the same thing,... More

My wife and I have been season ticket member at New Theatre for several seasons. The food is always excellent and the shows are always great, even though I don't love musicals I always enjoy the show. The facility was just remodeled and wow, it looks great. Chairs are now super comfy, food was over awesome, and the new digital... More

We have gone to the New Theatre Restaurant several times over the years and have always enjoyed both the shows and the food. Although we have seen several well known stars on the stage, the real "stars" are quite often lesser known local actors. The price is for two is more affordable than a lot of other forms of entertainment... More
