We love the Starlight, as it is a beautiful venue for summer night concerts. However, this time the parking situation was a nightmare. There was a festival going on in Swope Park at the same time, and it took nearly an hour to navigate the last few blocks. Police presence was absent, and there was no traffic control. Don't know...

Starlight Theatre is an excellent place for concerts, much better than the Sprint Center downtown. The weather can be an issue though. We have seen Chicago and Earth Wind & Fire here, as well as other concerts and performances. The Starlight staff are very helpful and the parking is ample and reasonable. On the subject of weather, several years ago... More

I saw 2 plays there this summer and in summers past as well. Starlight is a great place to go even if it is hot out it is not too bad. Some shows are better than others. The customer care is really great and restrooms are nice too.

Now our second visit to the Starlight. Saw concerts on both occasions and could not be more impressed with how neat this theatre is. Staff very nice. Parking affordable ($7) lots of food and affordable drink options as well. Go see a show here. You will not be disappointed!

I love Starlight's Broadway shows and have had season tickets for several years The venue is wonderful, but the weather doesn't always cooperate. It's hard to concentrate when the humidity is high. I can concentrate better at the concerts there! I usually go to several of the concerts each summer.

We have been here a few times for concerts and every time I have been so impressed with the helpful and friendly staff. We had a lady on a little buggie give us a ride to the entrance. That was awesome! They are eager to help in any way. We wanted them to point us in the right direction for... More

Loved the venue -Starlight theater! All seats are a good view - even up on top. Plenty of great bathrooms all around and snack/beer stations too. This was my first visit and I would love to see a play or concert here. The only downside was the preferred parking really got you nothing. General parking fee is all you need.... More

My son and I went to see "Mary Poppins" last night and not only was the show spectacular, but the venue itself was as well. The seats are comfortable, there is plenty of legroom, there are plenty of (air-conditioned!) bathrooms, and numerous places to buy food/drinks. You're allowed to take in 1 unopened water bottle per person, and there are... More

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.
