An American in Paris Dances Onto the Starlight Stage

I’ve seen a lot of musicals in my life, but never one like An American in Paris.

Imagine a story told in song, like an other musical, but the actors are professional ballet dancers. So not only do they sing beautifully, but they walk with the grace of people that […]

It’s your last chance to see the touring production of MAMMA MIA! as they say “farewell”, so get yourselves to Starlight Theatre THIS WEEKEND before they leave and the Jersey Boys come to town.

What If?

To say that this week has been stressful is the understatement of the millennium. This summer has been stressful, really, with trying to buy a house and actually close on it and move, but this last week all but did me in. I’ve had to find distractions to keep my […]

Bullets Over Broadway at Starlight Theatre

It was an absolutely gorgeous night for the opening of Bullets Over Broadway at Starlight Theatre. GORGEOUS. I took my mom to see the new touring Broadway production of Woody’s Allen’s show, and it did not disappoint. Neither of us had seen it, so we didn’t know exactly […]

One-Man Star Wars Trilogy at #StarlightIndoors

You know how much we love Starlight Theatre at our house, and the summer seasons that bring so much talent and entertainment to Kansas City (we’re really excited about the upcoming summer season!). But did you know that this year, for the first time, Starlight had a short and sweet […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Mary Poppins

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Cinderella

Despite a forecast that said the rain would clear by 8pm, or at the very least, the second act, we sat in a heavy-to-moderate drizzle for the entire production of Cinderella last night. The two girls, my mom and I went, but no one complained (even me…the complainer). We bought […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Pippin

  I’m going to be honest…I googled Pippin a couple of times before going to the show and read the press release, and I still wasn’t able to say what it was about or know what to expect. I knew that it was about a prince who’s trying to find […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Annie

Everyone’s favorite redheaded orphan is on her way to Starlight Theatre, and she’s bringing her orphan friends, rescued pup Sandy and LOTS of fun family entertainment with her! The national touring production of ANNIE is in town for only three nights as it plays a special Broadway weekend engagement at […]

#KC Starlight Broadway Series: Camelot

The second show in Starlight’s 65th Broadway series is Camelot! I took Henry with me for this one, because not only does he like the big musical productions (though he won’t readily admit it), he also is a boy that loooooves fight scenes. I thought this would be perfect. We […]
