Review: And Justice for Some: The Freedom Trial of Anthony Burns [1858] at The Coterie

You never know what to expect at The Coterie. Few local theaters are as diverse in their productions. Sometimes they make us laugh, sometimes they make us cry, but nearly always they make us think - and that is especially true with their current production, And Justice for Some: The Freedom Trial of Anthony Burns [1858]. The show is set in 1858, just before the rise of the Republican Party and the Presidential candidacy of Abraham Lincoln.

The Christmas Stories That Almost Weren’t Come to Life in Kansas City

Scrooge, the Grinch, Clara’s visions of sugarplums and Linus’ reading of shepherds’ worshipping a newborn King—these are beloved characters of stories we’ve come to know and cherish at Christmas, stories that reconnect us with the true meaning of the holiday. They are stories that have inspired imaginations for generations, that make us laugh, cry and reminisce. And they are stories that were almost never told...

Review: The Miracle Worker at The Coterie

This season's The Miracle Worker is truly in a league of its own. Everyone should see this show. It was one of the most powerful, poignant, heartfelt, and endearing shows I've ever seen, and the message is as important today as it was when Helen Keller and Annie Sullivan were alive. Correct that. The messages - so many important lessons all beautifully woven together in a telling of The Miracle Worker like you've never seen before.

Dinner and a Show

Review: Cirque Eloize iD at Starlight

Fourteen performers work together to demonstrate twelve circus disciplines with a mix of urban dance, breakdancing, and hip hop, combined with urban sets and backdrops, the show has a very young, modern, and urban feel. Each artist expresses their individuality and unique talent against the backdrop of the city. And through it all, a story unfolds - without a single spoken word, the West Side Story inspiration is evident.

25 Years of JCCC’s Performing Arts Series

Nestled in the heart of Johnson County, KS, is what Emily Behrmann calls a “hidden gem” and Kansas City’s “best-kept secret.”

Review: Mary Poppins at Starlight

With top-notch choreography, sets, and special effects (this show is full of magical surprises), you would never guess that Mary Poppins was produced by Starlight in just three weeks. Fans of the film will enjoy favorite songs performed to new choreography and story-telling and the addition of new songs that are fun and catchy. Our favorite scenes were Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Step in Time, both well choreographed. And, as mentioned before - be sure to stay for the end! The finale magic is worth the price of admission and had my children beaming all the way home.

Review: Cinderella at Starlight

Beautifully portraying the classic fairytale we all know and love and adding depth for new audiences, this is a summer must see for Kansas City families!

Review: A Year with Frog & Toad

The Coterie took this newer Broadway Musical and made it their own. With Seth Jones playing Frog, Steven Eubank as Toad, and a talented supporting cast of neighboring animals, the show takes children on an imaginative world of very small animals. With mushrooms for houses and leaves for beds, the sets are creative and vibrant.
