We visited to see Celtic Thunder and, yes the show was good. The theatre was an impressive old-school theatre with a lot of ornate decorations. Probably the best part was how well trained and friendly their staff was. It was busy, but everyone was friendly...More

The old theatre is beautiful, but since the floor does not slope downward, nobody but the first two or three rows of seats could see Vince Gill at all. The acoustics were so bad that when he talked to the audience, we could not even...More

I've been to many concerts and shows at The Midland. It has been beautifully restored, and is one of the best indoor entertainment venues in Kansas City. It's like going to a concert in a museum!
