SHIPWRECKED! at Spinning Tree Theatre 

A PerformInk critic’s pick, SHIPWRECKED! features only three actors who take the audience on a journey from 1860’s London to the Australian outback and everywhere in between. Our Marie Warner called SHIPWRECKED! a “wonderfully unique production.” Now playing through February 5th at the Just Off Broadway Theatre.


2012 National Touring Company.

STOMP presented by Theatre League at Kauffman Center

Playing this weekend only, STOMP combines percussion, movement, and visual comedy to create a contemporary form of rhythmic expression using both household and industrial objects as musical instruments.  The national tour is part of the Broadway in Kansas City series and runs January 28th and 29th.

Kansas City Symphony’s Classical Series at the Kauffman Center

The Kansas City Symphony helps us turn our minds to warmer days this weekend with Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony. Composed during one of the happiest periods of Schumann’s life, “Spring” remains one of his most treasured compositions and will certainly help us all forget the cold January weather. The evening also features Kansas City Symphony’s Principal Flute Michael Gordon performing Mozart’s G-Major Flute Concerto, and American composer Michael Gandolfi’s “The Garden of Cosmic Speculation.”
