Shaham’s impeccable musicianship touches those on and off the stage | KC Symphony

I have been working for the Kansas City Symphony for close to 10 years now and no part of it has ever been boring.

This means that nobody else in the country is allowed to produce the show. However, Levin, who is also the Unicorn’s producing artistic director, had the foresight to get the rights to this show before it blew up. The result is that there are only two places in the world to see this show right now — New York City and Kansas City.
