Flanked by city councilman Chuck Eddy, and City Manager Wayne Cauthen, Kansas City Mayor Kay Barnes listed the improvements to the Music Hall: new and reconfigured seating, an expanded stage, electrical upgrades, and updated restrooms. Barnes says the project came in on time and under budget.

Mayor Barnes: I'm happy to report that the project has come in under budget and these remaining funds...will help supplement future improvements to be completed later this year.

City officials say they expect the improvements to attract more nationally touring musical acts and performances. Stomp! is the first production for the remodeled venue and opens next week. Laura Spencer, KCUR News.
