OffStage is offline

KCStage is suspending OffStage indefinitely. During its four years of operation, OffStage curated all of the performing arts news in the Kansas City region, including Columbia, Lawerence, and Topeka, as a free service for the Kansas City community. We hope it has been informative and useful to highlight our region's thriving arts scene, and we look forward to all the great things that the arts in Kansas City has to offer in the future.
