“Beautiful Place to See”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The place itself is gorgeous inside and out. It is delightful simply to be in the building to watch the colors of the sunset with the skyline of Kansas City. The show (we saw Flat Stanley) was fun and tickets aren't very expensive. Also, it is a great stop if you're visiting Kansas City on a cold day and need to be indoors!

“Very beautiful inside -”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

I attended a holiday concert in December. My first time visiting the new Kauffmann Center. We enjoyed the concert and the beautiful building. Leaving the concert was a little difficult. They were serving wine in the main lobby area, which became very crowded, and there was difficulty in getting down the staircase and out of the auditorium because of the number of people lingering in the lobby area.

“A jewel of KC inside and out”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Another quick review. Was here in December for my daughters dress rehearsal. The archtecture is amazing. The hall with the piper organ sounded great. Only challenge is getting from and to the parking garage. It is a bit of a maze.
