5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Went to last year's Christmas themed show and have tickets for this year. What a wonderful place to hear beautiful music!

the accoustics here are fabulous! Not a classier place in town - and in KC - that is saying a lot! Simply beautiful!

“Looks a bit like the Sidney Opera House - but on a smaller & more colorful scale”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Gorgeous architecture -- but it's the incredible acoustics that are truly awe-inspiring. Better than state-of-the-art and performances are a joy to behold.

“A gem in downtown Kansas City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

The Kaufman Center is located in the heart of Kansas City's entertainment district just a short walk from the Power and Light and other major entertainment venues. The building is beautiful, and a welcome addition to the KC skyline. Parking is adequate and easy to access (it was $7 the night we visited). The staff are very helpful and informative. Inside, you will find a number of bars, a small gift shop and two theaters. The Kaufman is also VERY clean and well maintained - well done!
