KC Melting Pot Theatre delivers a surprising addition to the growing amount of Christmas shows in the Kansas City area with ON SHOULDERS NOW.

The best thing about the production, however, is the kids.
Spinning Tree has put together a stellar cast in an intimate venue that reflects the style of the script well.
But the opening moments do not go the way we expect, and this becomes the theme of the evening, as the story grabs us, shakes us, refuses to let go.
A production that delivers everything you could want in musical theater.
Honestly, it is a difficult thing to refresh an old tale and it cannot be said that this play isn’t entertaining or interesting.
WEST SIDE STORY hasn’t aged enough in sixty-one years. Despite the limitations of the era in which it was written, it somehow sits in a timeless bubble of music, romance, and relevancy.
MTH Theater’s MY FAIR LADY is proof that the classics can still find relevance with a modern audience.
The appeal of LAST DAYS OF SUMMER is in its nostalgia. It’s funny, charming, and touching, with a good dose of old-fashioned Americana. The themes of friendship, fatherhood, and sacrifice still resonate.
