We attended a symphony concert at the Performing Arts Center, and it was amazing. The building needs to be experienced. The magnificent atrium seemed that it should be in a Star Wars movie. A photo of the concert is attached.

Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is a place that must be experienced multiple times a year, every year for life! Love it! Wish we could go more often! It is a magnificent place for the Performing Arts!

Had an enjoyable afternoon listening to the Kansas City symphony. What great local talent. The conductor was so passionate and fun to watch. I was sitting in the loft area so had a great view of the conductor. Kaufman center is a beautiful facility.

Went here to see The Color Purple-The musical. The facility is very nice. The acoustics are good. However, it was a bit tricky to get from the parking garage to our seats but they had guides all along the way directing you. Very nice.

I simply cannot say enough about this place. The architecture and design are stunning inside and out. We love to go to the holiday performance by the symphony and have not been let down yet.

Attended the Nutcracker and it was a lovely event and would recommend visiting the center. It’s also a wonderful experience for children.

I would strongly recommend it. Parking is limited and you could pay at time of parking if spaces are available, but pre-paying by buying on-line is your best bet. You could also do street parking but i would not recommend it
