Just Off Broadway Theatre has, for over 10 years, hosted local live theatre in our "black box" performance space located in Penn Valley Park. Over 60 performing arts companies have performed over 200 shows in the theatre for over 40,000 audience members.The theatre building, owned by Kansas City Parks and Recreation, has recently been dark as major space renovations were completed. Now, after almost a year of renovations, the theatre reopens in September with a brand new season of performing arts from some of the best theatre talent in Kansas City. The renovation has added a new, spacious lobby, new concession stand, new dressing rooms, a second performance space with a "sprung floor" and all new HVAC.The first production for the new season is the weekend of Sept. 16 and features the debut of Journeyman Theatre Company's "Generation Why" - a rock operetta that will play through October 1.

Set in one of Kansas City's historical landmarks, this theatre is a hidden gem among Kansas City's vibrant theatre community. A host of production companies consider this theatre their home. Performances range from Shakespearean Dramas to Tyler Perry style Gospel theatre and from Children's Theatre to Burlesque. Just Off Broadway has it all!

I just saw Into the Woods at Just Off Broadway Theater. The performances were top notch; the voices absolutely glorious. The costumes were creative and beautiful, the sets were minimalist-perfect, and the theater was just the right size to really appreciate the talented performers. Sondheim would have been proud. Kudos to She & Her Productions and to everyone who put... More
