The Rocky Horror Show even better the second time | examiner.com | OffStage | Scoop.it

How do you improve on near perfection? The answer is simple, see The Rocky Horror Show a second time at Off Center Theatre in Crown Center. The cult classic turned forty on opening night in June and was a hit. Steven Eubanks, the Artistic Director for Egads Theatre, directs this rock musical that not only improves with time, but apparently with every performance. This has become one of the funniest and sexiest shows produced in Kansas City.

Young Arts Patron | KC Studio

Growing up in Kansas City, Tuesday nights in the summer meant Starlight Theatre. It still remains my favorite family outing — going out to dinner, and then watching a Broadway show under the stars in the cool summer breeze. Every time I step into Starlight I can feel the magic come alive, whether I’m watching Les Misérables or The Wizard of Oz – it’s a place I walk away from singing the tunes for days and days.
