While visiting family in Kansas City, we got tickets for Mary Poppins at the Starlight Theater. The venue was beautiful; the staff was exceptional and the musical was top notch. Wish we lived closer- we would be regulars for sure!

One of the best venues in Kansas City to see award winning Broadway shows. The outdoor theater makes it so neat to watch a show and all the workers are very nice and helpful. Make sure you see a show here.

An amazing venue. Bought tickets for Mary Poppins the musical. While the night was torturously hot, the performances and venue made up for the heat. Great setting, tour, and production. Cannot wait to return.

Came here twice. Saw Buddy Guy and Train. Both shows were fantastic. Love the layout of this venue. It is probably my favorite venue I've been to. They really did a great job designing and building this venue. Great attention to detail. Kansas City is one of my favorite cities and this is just another Pro.

This venue is amazing. Easy to find and really lovely, friendly staff. It is outside and has a great PA system and stage. When booking your seats I'd say try to avoid the outermost groups if possible, you get a good enough view but it is worth the extra to be nearer the centre. Don't worry about being too far... More

Well trained polite staff are in all areas.The parking attendents, concession workers, ushers, ticket takers, security, etc. were all as helpful and polite as could be. The Theatre itself is beautiful and well maintained. We will definitely... More

From the moment we walked into the Starlight Theatre I was blown away. Very clean. Landscaping and hard scaping very beautiful. It was a very hot summer day and in certain areas there were large outdoor fans with misters. Would have been great to have those over the seating areas :) I was very impressed with the bathrooms. They were... More

We have been to several concerts over the past years. Sit in several different locations at the venue. Not have had a bad seat yet. Staff is very courteous and professional. Would recommend attending an event there.

My husband and I saw Train at the Starlight Theater in July 2015. We had standing room only tickets and still got an incredible show. There really isn't a bad seat in the house. The theater is clean and beautiful and parking was easy. I will probably pay attention to who/what will be there in the future, just for a... More

Great place for outdoor plays, ballet and concerts. Nice place to see a show, they have the specials like 4 plays for one price. Check their web site for upcoming events and specials. Nice change to be under the stairs seeing a live show.
