From the Tony Award®-winning creators of the Broadway classic Ragtime, this dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.
Anastasia features a book by celebrated playwright Terrence McNally, a lush new score by Stephen Flaherty (music) and Lynn Ahrens (lyrics) based on original direction by Tony Award® winner Darko Tresnjak with choreography by Peggy Hickey and tour direction by Sarah Hartmann.

[more+]

BoskSoul is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalists and composers David Boisvert and Charlie Harris.  Charlie and David write and perform in a way that blurs the conventional lines associated with various genres.  Over the last few years Charlie’s music, as a composer and artist in different musical projects, has been featured in print media as well as jazz and folk radio nationally.  In this same span, David, a highly sought-after saxophonist, performed with such diverse artists as five-time Grammy Winner Victor Wooten and Eric Struthers, the lead guitarist for Dr. John and the Neville Brothers.  David from Nashville and Charlie from Kansas City met ten years ago at Wooten Woods-the musical complex built and maintained by Victor Wooten.  After jamming together on and off over the years in Nashville and Kansas City, they decided upon an ambitious project-not only pen original compositions, but also produce, arrange, and play all the instruments on the compositions in live settings.  What began as a side project, between their busy schedules with other musical projects, blossomed into a true labor of love that produced two singles now available on all major streaming networks.
BoskSoul will be featured in the Folly’s LIVE! in the Lounge Series where they will not only be performing songs from the previously mentioned soundtrack, but also, for the first time, will be performing music for their soon to be released album.  As they like to say, “we are just beginning and welcome to the world of BoskSoul.”

[more+]

SISTER ACT is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to REJOICE!

[more+]

Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. While the harp has allowed this Kansas City native to become a man of the world (gaining followings in Paris, Edinburgh and at the Outlyre Harpist Festival in Austria), it’s his unique ability to craft a stimulating setting at his live shows that has all eyes fixed on this conspicuous musician and his breathtaking approach to harp music.
His angelic, classically trained voice soars over audiences, enchanting even the fussiest of fans, beckoning them to join him as he flirts between genres. He dances between indie, jazz and electronic music while calling upon rare harmonies and arrangements from his team of performers. But the music is just one part of his prodigious performances. Arsenia believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational performances and high fashion from the visually striking performer who stands more than six feet tall.

[more+]

Making Movies is a band that makes American music with an asterisk: because their sound encompasses the entirety of the Americas. It’s through this broader perspective that Making Movies crunches classic rock into Latin American rhythms — African-derived percussion and styles like rumba, merengue, mambo and cumbia — in a way that feels oddly familiar yet delivers the invigorating chills of hearing something singularly special.
​​Over the course of their career, the quartet has turned heads as a newcomer on NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concerts” (with "A La Deriva"), a voice for immigrant rights (with "I Am Another You" which reached No. 3 on Billboard's Latin Pop Album chart) and as a co-writer alongside salsa icon Rubén Blades (with the Latin Grammy nominated song "No Te Calles”).
The band employs a standard rock lineup of guitar/bass/drums/percussion, but members also incorporate synthesizers, effects pedals and indigenous instruments from Latin America into their music.  They interweave styles as divergent as cumbia and blues, salsa and soul, Cuban son and rock'n'roll––all boiled down into their own original sound.
Making Movies has toured extensively, appearing with the likes of Arcade Fire, Rubén Blades, Los Lobos, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Bomba Estereo, Galactic, Flor De Toloache and Thievery Corporation. The band's fourth album will be released summer 2022 on the L.A.-based label Cósmica Artists.

[more+]

Almost four years after his first foray into unfamiliar concert territory with his highly-acclaimed Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, “Weird Al” Yankovic is pressing his luck again, this time with The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour. The tour marks Weird Al’s long-anticipated return to the concert stage after his hugely successful Strings Attached Tour in 2019 where he performed each night alongside a full symphony orchestra. Once again drawing from his back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night, with no two shows the same. As before, rather than focusing on the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the somewhat more obscure pastiches and original songs that have largely escaped the pop culture radar but are adored by his long-time fans. And like the last Vanity Tour, he is leaving behind the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and going bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens … just Al and his band of almost four decades in smaller, more intimate venues, hanging out on stage, playing music. Kauffman Center Presents is made possible by the John N. and Marilyn P. McConnell Foundation.

[more+]

“If music be the food of love, play on.” Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity, music and the madness of love, Twelfth Night finds new life as the celebratory kick-off to our 22-23 season. A tale of unrequited love that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Twelfth Night starts when a ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Nelson T. Eusebio III and featuring original music by Jason Ma, poetic design, and a killer cast of actors, this funny, fresh, and contemporary take on one of Shakespeare’s most romantic works will open KCRep's 22/23 season.

[more+]

The opening of a new Kansas City Symphony season is cause for celebration and we can hardly wait to share this exhilarating program with you! James Lee III’s vivacious Amer’ican, a work inspired by paintings emblematic of America, is a 21st-century response to Antonín Dvořák’s call for American composers to embrace Black and Indigenous music. Filled with colorful flourishes and dense textures, Amer’ican offers Lee’s unique perspective on our country’s history and his hope for the future.
Dazzling audiences with his flawless technique and incomparable warmth, Kansas City favorite Gil Shaham brings his absolute mastery to Saint-Saëns’ most famous violin concerto. An elegant work that blends graceful sophistication with fiery virtuosity, the concerto’s exciting conclusion will bring you to your feet.
Aaron Copland sought to express the breadth of America in his Symphony No. 3. Composed at the end of World War II, the symphony reflected what Copland called “the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.” Incorporating his inspiring Fanfare for the Common Man into the symphony, Copland captured the heroism and optimism of the era. Spacious and lyrical, this lofty music was described by Boston Symphony Music Director Serge Koussevitsky as “the greatest American symphony ever written.”

Matthew Maxey hails from Decatur, Georgia, and currently resides in Atlanta. He was born with a severely profound hearing loss and outfitted with hearing aids at 2 years old. At an early age, it became apparent his life would be anything but ordinary.

In 2014, DEAFinitely Dope was founded to provide support to those who felt marginalized and ignored by mainstream America. DEAFinitely Dope started as a brand and slowly blossomed into a movement, attracting educational institutions, CNN, ESPN’s The Undefeated, GQ, Cole Haan, ABC news, Chance The Rapper, MTV Video Music Awards and countless more.

BoskSoul is the brainchild of multi-instrumentalists and composers David Boisvert and Charlie Harris.  Charlie and David write and perform in a way that blurs the conventional lines associated with various genres.  Over the last few years Charlie’s music, as a composer and artist in different musical projects, has been featured in print media as well as jazz and folk radio nationally.  In this same span, David, a highly sought-after saxophonist, performed with such diverse artists as five-time Grammy Winner Victor Wooten and Eric Struthers, the lead guitarist for Dr. John and the Neville Brothers.  David from Nashville and Charlie from Kansas City met ten years ago at Wooten Woods-the musical complex built and maintained by Victor Wooten.  After jamming together on and off over the years in Nashville and Kansas City, they decided upon an ambitious project-not only pen original compositions, but also produce, arrange, and play all the instruments on the compositions in live settings.  What began as a side project, between their busy schedules with other musical projects, blossomed into a true labor of love that produced two singles now available on all major streaming networks.
BoskSoul will be featured in the Folly’s LIVE! in the Lounge Series where they will not only be performing songs from the previously mentioned soundtrack, but also, for the first time, will be performing music for their soon to be released album.  As they like to say, “we are just beginning and welcome to the world of BoskSoul.”

SISTER ACT is the feel-good musical comedy smash based on the hit 1992 film that has audiences jumping to their feet! Featuring original music by Tony- and eight-time Oscar winner Alan Menken (Newsies, Beauty and the Beast, Little Shop of Horrors), this uplifting musical was nominated for five Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
When disco diva Deloris Van Cartier witnesses a murder, she is put in protective custody in the one place the cops are sure she won't be a found: a convent! Disguised as a nun, she finds herself at odds with both the rigid lifestyle and uptight Mother Superior. Using her unique disco moves and singing talent to inspire the choir, Deloris breathes new life into the church and community but, in doing so, blows her cover. Soon, the gang is giving chase, only to find themselves up against Deloris and the power of her newly found sisterhood.
Filled with powerful gospel music, outrageous dancing and a truly moving story, Sister Act will leave audiences breathless. A sparkling tribute to the universal power of friendship, SISTER ACT is reason to REJOICE!

Calvin Arsenia has built a reputation for turning the arts world on its head. While the harp has allowed this Kansas City native to become a man of the world (gaining followings in Paris, Edinburgh and at the Outlyre Harpist Festival in Austria), it’s his unique ability to craft a stimulating setting at his live shows that has all eyes fixed on this conspicuous musician and his breathtaking approach to harp music.
His angelic, classically trained voice soars over audiences, enchanting even the fussiest of fans, beckoning them to join him as he flirts between genres. He dances between indie, jazz and electronic music while calling upon rare harmonies and arrangements from his team of performers. But the music is just one part of his prodigious performances. Arsenia believes the art is in crafting the perfect moment. His music is best served live, with sensational performances and high fashion from the visually striking performer who stands more than six feet tall.

[more+]

Making Movies is a band that makes American music with an asterisk: because their sound encompasses the entirety of the Americas. It’s through this broader perspective that Making Movies crunches classic rock into Latin American rhythms — African-derived percussion and styles like rumba, merengue, mambo and cumbia — in a way that feels oddly familiar yet delivers the invigorating chills of hearing something singularly special.
​​Over the course of their career, the quartet has turned heads as a newcomer on NPR’s “Tiny Desk Concerts” (with "A La Deriva"), a voice for immigrant rights (with "I Am Another You" which reached No. 3 on Billboard's Latin Pop Album chart) and as a co-writer alongside salsa icon Rubén Blades (with the Latin Grammy nominated song "No Te Calles”).
The band employs a standard rock lineup of guitar/bass/drums/percussion, but members also incorporate synthesizers, effects pedals and indigenous instruments from Latin America into their music.  They interweave styles as divergent as cumbia and blues, salsa and soul, Cuban son and rock'n'roll––all boiled down into their own original sound.
Making Movies has toured extensively, appearing with the likes of Arcade Fire, Rubén Blades, Los Lobos, Hurray For the Riff Raff, Bomba Estereo, Galactic, Flor De Toloache and Thievery Corporation. The band's fourth album will be released summer 2022 on the L.A.-based label Cósmica Artists.

[more+]

Almost four years after his first foray into unfamiliar concert territory with his highly-acclaimed Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour, “Weird Al” Yankovic is pressing his luck again, this time with The Unfortunate Return of the Ridiculously Self-Indulgent, Ill-Advised Vanity Tour. The tour marks Weird Al’s long-anticipated return to the concert stage after his hugely successful Strings Attached Tour in 2019 where he performed each night alongside a full symphony orchestra. Once again drawing from his back catalogue of 14 studio albums, Weird Al promises to deliver a different set list every night, with no two shows the same. As before, rather than focusing on the hits from his career, the show will feature Yankovic’s non-parody material – the somewhat more obscure pastiches and original songs that have largely escaped the pop culture radar but are adored by his long-time fans. And like the last Vanity Tour, he is leaving behind the high-octane theatrics that he’s known for and going bare-bones – no costumes, no props, no video screens … just Al and his band of almost four decades in smaller, more intimate venues, hanging out on stage, playing music. Kauffman Center Presents is made possible by the John N. and Marilyn P. McConnell Foundation.

“If music be the food of love, play on.” Shakespeare’s comedy of mistaken identity, music and the madness of love, Twelfth Night finds new life as the celebratory kick-off to our 22-23 season. A tale of unrequited love that is both hilarious and heartbreaking. Twelfth Night starts when a ship is wrecked on the rocks. Viola is washed ashore but her twin brother Sebastian is lost. Determined to survive on her own, she steps out to explore a new land. So begins a whirlwind of mistaken identity and unrequited love. Where music is the food of love, and nobody is quite what they seem, anything proves possible. Directed by Associate Artistic Director Nelson T. Eusebio III and featuring original music by Jason Ma, poetic design, and a killer cast of actors, this funny, fresh, and contemporary take on one of Shakespeare’s most romantic works will open KCRep's 22/23 season.

[more+]

The opening of a new Kansas City Symphony season is cause for celebration and we can hardly wait to share this exhilarating program with you! James Lee III’s vivacious Amer’ican, a work inspired by paintings emblematic of America, is a 21st-century response to Antonín Dvořák’s call for American composers to embrace Black and Indigenous music. Filled with colorful flourishes and dense textures, Amer’ican offers Lee’s unique perspective on our country’s history and his hope for the future.
Dazzling audiences with his flawless technique and incomparable warmth, Kansas City favorite Gil Shaham brings his absolute mastery to Saint-Saëns’ most famous violin concerto. An elegant work that blends graceful sophistication with fiery virtuosity, the concerto’s exciting conclusion will bring you to your feet.
Aaron Copland sought to express the breadth of America in his Symphony No. 3. Composed at the end of World War II, the symphony reflected what Copland called “the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.” Incorporating his inspiring Fanfare for the Common Man into the symphony, Copland captured the heroism and optimism of the era. Spacious and lyrical, this lofty music was described by Boston Symphony Music Director Serge Koussevitsky as “the greatest American symphony ever written.”

Matthew Maxey hails from Decatur, Georgia, and currently resides in Atlanta. He was born with a severely profound hearing loss and outfitted with hearing aids at 2 years old. At an early age, it became apparent his life would be anything but ordinary. Fast forward as Maxey attended the prestigious Gallaudet University in Washington, D.C., where he learned sign language to balance the struggle of developing his identity as a double minority in terms of ability and race.
In 2014, DEAFinitely Dope was founded to provide support to those who felt marginalized and ignored by mainstream America. DEAFinitely Dope started as a brand and slowly blossomed into a movement, attracting educational institutions, CNN, ESPN’s The Undefeated, GQ, Cole Haan, ABC news, Chance The Rapper, MTV Video Music Awards and countless more.
