Guests at our Kansas City Bed and Breakfast frequently ask us to brief them on events occurring here in KC. One of the joys of Innkeeping is sharing our enthusiasm for the city by offering suggestions about what guests can do and see during their visit. We are thrilled when we find a Kansas City gem that we can pass along to our guests and friends. Once such pearl is the Kansas City Repertory Theatre. Under the direction of Eric Rosen, “The Rep” has consistently produced critically acclaimed productions ranging from light musicals to dramatic plays.
Recently, we took in “Broke-ology” with our friends Kitty and Kelly. While the two prior productions we saw were met with mixed reviews, “Broke-ology” was a unanimous favorite. It is a realistic, heartfelt story especially poignant to siblings dealing with aging or ailing parents. Locals take particular pride in this production because it was written by 31-year-old Nathan Louis Jackson from Kansas City, Kansas. “Broke-ology” is showing at the Sprint Copaken Stage downtown continuing its run through March 21.
The Rep’s most recent production, “Bus Stop” opened on March 12 and will run through April 3, 2010 at the Spencer Theatre on the UMKC campus.
