Off Center Theatre Debuts with ATKC in Crown Center

Included all along in the plans to rejuvenate downtown Kansas City was the performing arts center and a new AMC theatre in the old Empire movie house. Lately, other venues are capturing some of that lightning in a bottle. By Steve Walker


Kansas City, MO – As KCUR's Steve Walker reports, Crown Center is about to open its third theatre space, Off Center Theatre, that will join several theatre groups under one roof.

CORRECTION: The Coterie Theatre was founded in 1979; Crown Center has been hosting theatre events for nearly 30 years, not 20.
