“Broadway without the cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

Our family attended our first performance at this theatre at the end of October to see CATS. What an experience! The theatre is gorgeous and intimate. The Missouri Theater featured local talent and was an excellent introduction to the "stage" for my eight year old niece. This location is a perfect alternative to the high priced events in Kansas City. In fact, it wasn't much more expensive than had we went to a movie theater. However, as other reviewers have noted, the balcony does seem a little steep and we had partially block views of the back left of the stage. In the future, we will "splurge" on better seats. The cast greeted guests after the performance, giving us the total experience.

“superlative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

no matter what you do in st joseph, you have to visit the Missouri theater while you are here. truly an iconic experience..... if there isn't a show while you are here BEG the allied arts staff to take you through. it is breath-taking.

“Beautiful small theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Beautiful interior, good view from the middle (not too expensive) seats. We've been to several shows here, from Fiddler on the Roof to Ron White and always enjoyed ourselves. Only negative - seats are way small and not a lot of foot room. The steps are pretty steep, but we've always found ourselves at the bottom of the upper section.
