My teenager daughters attended a concert here. They had a great time. As a out of town parent I can say that it appears to be a very safe place and pick up and drop off couldn’t have been easier!

Hands down the best outdoor venue I have ever been too. Friendly staff, beautiful venue, we even got great parking. Absolutely loved the artists that played and the sound was amazing. Hope to see another concert there soon.

My husband got us tickets for our anniversary to see Dirty Dancing. It was wonderful sitting under the stars watching one of my favorite shows. There were so many yummy food choices too! Can’t wait to go again!

Wonderful outdoor production of the King and I which we got to see as well as experience. There were lots of attendants and ushers ready to direct and help with seating. You won't get a bad seat in this theatre.

Great venue & very organized! Didn’t purchase any food due to such long lines but staff were friendly. Loved the shuttle to your car used it both in and out!

We've gone to several plays and concerts at Starlight. Was it hot??? Heck yes!! But since they've installed the new fans it was tolerable. Prices for most events are reasonable. If you go to their ticket window to buy tickets, make sure you buy a...More

We went to Starlight to catch the Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan concert. We thought the weather was really hot most the day, so the venue would be terrible. We were wrong. They had misters, they had fans, they had large shady areas. They were...More

This is a very large outdoor theater that will seat over 700 people. They run a Broadway series during the summer and we have been fortunate to see plays there for the last few years. The summer plays start at 8 pm just as darkness...More

We saw dirty dancing and had a great time. It was a little warm but they have fans now to create a breeze. Awesome food and beer selection. It’s was a great experience and would recommend this for anyone.

No, you would not want to stay in this area. Gocloset to the Plaza or South Kansas City, Overland Park, Ks would also be a good choice with lots of hotels to choose from.
