This Center is a spectacular place in Kansas City! They get the best performers in the world! We observed & listened to 2 hours of phenomenal talent in a Christmas concert performed by a world renowned traveling choir. Every seat in the center is great; the sound spectacular; price of the tickets very affordable!

I went to Kauffman for the first time and was very impressed. Parking was easy to access and they moved people through the line quickly to keep traffic moving. The staff was friendly and helpful. Any seat you purchase is a great seat. You can see the entire stage from anywhere. I will definitely go back for more events

There's not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are phenomenal. If you have difficulty walking distance, request a wheelchair and/or staff assistance. The higher the seat, the more walking and elevator changes. Lots of friendly staff and volunteers for assistance and support.

This is a winderful addition for the arts in Kansas City. The seating is very comfortable but the accoustics are the best I have ever experienced. Sound quality is amazing!

I have seen a variety of performances at the Kauffman Center and NEVER had a bad experience. I even accompanied my disabled mother to an event and found the staff more than helpful getting us to our seats. Great staff and amazing facility.

Have attended several wonderful shows/concerts here such as Carol Burnett's show, Michael Feinstein's concert and Vince Gill's concert. The glassed in lobby is beautiful overlooking lit up KC at night, the parking garage is easy to get in and out of under Kauffman Ctr, the two concert halls are beautiful and each so different and world class. This center adds... More

My wife and I have seen many performances in both halls within Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. This center is more than excellent. The acoustics are superb and the design/architecture of the center is impressive in itself. A must see if you are a tourist or a local.
