Broadway Across America and Theater League Combine Broadway Series


In 2006, the Kansas City City Council awarded a contract to Broadway Across America - instead of Kansas City-based Theater League - to present Broadway shows in the Music Hall. Today the two organizations announced they've teamed up to present a five-show "Kansas City Best of Broadway Series."

Kansas City, MO – There will be two shows at the Music Hall, and three in the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, as part of its inaugural 2011 - 2012 season.

KCUR's Laura Spencer talked to Broadway Across America's Ann Rippey and Theater League's Mark Edelman about the agreement.

The full lineup of Broadway touring productions for the 2011-2012 season at the Kauffman Center and the Music Hall will be announced in January 2011.

For a more detailed look at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts, its mission, and the organizations that will present there, check out KCUR's blog Sound and Glass.
