Beautiful theater surrounded by lovely grounds next to the zoo. Sound and lights where excellent but could not see screen well since speakers hung down all the way even though my seat was close. Next time will not choose left or right section since view will be obstructed. Even though dropped off was still long way to gate and then... More

This is an interesting outdoor experience! They don't cancel for rain, so come prepared! Might want a jacket when the sun goes down. If you want to bring a stroller, make sure you get an aisle seat, because there is no room in-between the rows. Would recommend a spring or fall show, as summer is HOT even at night. You... More

Although Starlight is mainly for Broadway Plays, it is an awesome place to attend a concert. The food, service, parking directors and ushers are first class.

Beautiful night for a concert. Theater is handicapped accessible but a long walking distant in the parking lot unless you go very early. The ramps to the seating are very steep. The flooring under the seats is flat, so walking can be very difficult. The handicapped restrooms are large but no raised toilet seats. The handicapped seating is very accessible,... More

We saw The Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder, which was very good! This outdoor theater is lovely! Once the sun sets, it's nice and cool with a nice breeze! Sitting out under the stars is delightful! Staff at concession stands were very friendly & helpful! If you're in need of assistance, they also provide a cart to drive you... More

I have been to Starlight for several concerts this summer; each time, I'm so impressed with the quality of the venue. It is an intimate place to see a concert, but it is also great for seeing a big concert...meeting that middle-ground. They offer a variety of beers and other drinks and a nice array of food snacks. The acoustics... More

It's not Red Rock amphitheater in Colorado but as close as you can get in KC - venue is simply great - seats in the rear sections are still close enough to the stage. The cascading water fall is a great spot to hang out, people watch and take photo's. The updated amphitheater has several bar areas with a vast... More
