I've seen many, many shows here and I've loved every one. Going to another this Friday. My parents have season tickets to their Broadway Series and I've seen concerts and all kinds of things. Downsides are they don't often cancel shows due to rain, so bring an umbrella. And my parents have season tickets but can't get any closer to... More

Great venue! We attended the Home Free/Alabama concert on 9/29/16. (Fantastic!) We had admission to Applause Club which had great food & other amenities (band on the patio as we ate). Our seats were great & the acoustics/sight lines to the stage were also great. Everyone working at the venue was very helpful & friendly. We will check out future... More

We attended the Home Free & Alabama concert on Sept. 29th. The venue itself was amazing, well located & accessible restrooms. Good choice of food & drinks. Helpful & friendly staff. Clean and well landscaped, beautiful fountains. Seating was much better than I expected. Our only complaint was that once Alabama took the stage a large group of people in... More

My family loves musicals and go to at least one at Starlight every summer. The backstage tours are fun for anyone who is into theater. Not a bad seat in the house.

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
