Josh Groban concert was a wonderful experience at an outdoor location in KC in August - was warm but not too humid and not a cloud in the sky! The security was a little excessive but expected given recent events. T he venue was great, the food and drinks were fine and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would go... More

I went to Starlight Theatre for the third time to see If/Then (the national Broadway tour). Before that, I've seen The Sound of Music and Cinderella. All were amazing. The seats were great- no matter where I sit I always seem to get a good view. Sound is excellent, and of course the plays themselves are outstanding. I usually only... More

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
