We actually came in January of 2014 to see Alton Brown. I loved the show and the floor seats we had. The theater itself is incredibly beautiful inside. If you like beautiful carved woodwork and old architecture it's definitely worth a visit. It's a rather intimate venue, and I don't think any seat in the house would be bad. The... More

My visit was a few years ago, but it was memorable! A small group of friends and I dressed for a Halloween concert at the Midland - the artist was Cyndi Lauper. What a hoot! Cyndi did a great job, the theater had great acoustics, was easy to get in and out, there was ample parking in the surrounding area,... More

Nice lobby, some construction defects all over the place, but not enough to detract from the overall beauty. Major problem? The floor doesn't slope well. Unless you are in the front row of one of the levels, or on the balcony, don't bother getting any seats past row 10 or so. You won't be able to see the stage. Period.... More

I always enjoy this venue no matter what type of entertainment which ranges from popular comedians to Kid Rock, Joe Bonamassa, Peter Frampton, and Davy Knowles. It's a smaller venue which is nice compared to the vastness and crowds at the Sprint Center. Really not a bad seat in the place.

First I will say that I was not familiar with Bassnector, but always up for an adventure. The facility is one of the most beautiful landmarks in KC. I bought tickets at a charity auction for on the floor standing for the concert, but there were seats set up behind the sound system. The crowd was really young (20 somethings)... More

Beautiful old venue with amazing detail inside. Very good acoustics and views for a concert. We had a great time in the 3rd row of the balcony section center stage. Easy parking nearby makes it an easy in and out location. Great place for a show.

(Now called Arvest Bank Theatre at The Midland). Saw Jerry Seinfeld perform here with my husband. We had tickets for center upper balcony. My husband's seat was fine, but I had a tall guy sitting in front of me, so as Seinfeld paced back and forth across the stage during his set, I had to keep leaning left, then right,... More

Our closing dinner/entertainment for a business conference was held in this theatre. The wait and bar staff were fantastic. The facility was absolutely gorgeous and we were able to tour around a bit and check out much of the building.
