Owner passed away. The building has been resold w/no plans for a new playhouse theatre as of yet. Hopefully we'll know soon what they plan to do with the building.

The play was great, funny and light, my friends and I thought the price was very reasonable, just $32.00 a person. The only bad part was the food, it was cold,bland and just gross. If they improve the food it would be a 4 out of 5 from me. Still a fun night out with the girls.

The last visit we saw a note on the door that the theater was closed due to death. Upon researching we learned, the owner had died.

We were at the Paradise Playhouse a few weeks ago to see the Storytellers Journey. It was a wonderful performance, great food and overall enjoyable evening. What a great evening out!! Thank you -- great staff too!

This option is much cheaper than KC playhouses, but the food is so much worse. I wish there were a way to break apart the dinner from the play because I would go and see a play again, but I never want to eat the food again!

Went on the spur of the moment to see Always Patsy Cline. Great singing & band. The theater is well laid out so all seats are good. There was a dinner buffet- really good and plenty to eat. Definitely recommend!

The facility is a bit dated. Particularly the eating venue is not adequate. Long food Lines for dishes that were catered and placed in warmers. When my group of last 10 persons made it to service area, food was running out. Desserts ran out. The owner should do some creative changes to provide an enjoyable meal.

I have visited the Paradise Playhouse quite a few times having season tickets for 3 years or so. It was a good way for my husband and I to get out for an evening with friends and enjoy something together. Always enjoyed the meals and most usually the plays. I have not been there since the new owners took over,... More
