I love going to shows at the Midland. Great décor and environment. I always like to get there early and walk around and imagine what it would have been like new. The management is doing a great job at keeping this a lively and important theatre in KC. Not really a bad seat in the house, but upper balcony is... More

Beautifully refurbished older theatre. I don't recommend the balcony seats though, just not very good viewing, pay the extra and get seats on the floor. Lots of traveling Broadway shows come in here or try the new Kauffman Center if you are in town and looking for some good entertainment.

I have seen a couple of concerts here. Very nice, cool old theater. Not very big so the experience is more personal.

First concert here for Kacey Musgraves. We had tickets in the GA Pit. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and intricate. Could easily spend a lot of time exploring it with your eyes. It makes you feel fancy being there, although so do $10 beers. As far as for a concert, we were spoiled being up close, but the acoustics and... More

Really enjoyed seeing a music act here recently. Bought tickets late and got seats way in the back (Section 405), which turned out to be a lucky stroke. We could see and hear everything on stage with nothing blocking our view. Will definitely chose to sit up there again. Lobby and theater are elegantly restored and seem well-maintained. Wish the...

Architecture is beautiful as is some of the glass. Seating quite comfortable. Access in and out with a full-house is rather cumbersome. But it's old!

This is a beautiful restored theatre. Easy access to restrooms and bars. I just don't think their acoustics are as good as some other places

Went to see Diana Krall tonight and while the concert was great, I was on the floor in Row L In the Center and I could see nothing. Not because people in front of me stood up (everyone stayed seated) but because some years back they pulled out all the regular seats in the first xx number of rows and... More
