Kansas City K-Pac Suffers Amid Low Rent Fare

Local music critic complains about increasingly low brow offerings from this cowtown culture center. Checkit:

Kauffman Blues

I celebrated when I purchased a half-price seat in the front row for Philip Glass' appearance at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in 2012. In hindsight, I should have shed a tear.

It is named a "performing arts center".
Just because you do not care for a particular artist or style does not mean that someone else doesn't.

Narrow minded music critics to me are 100 times worse than narrow minded movie critics.

Have to agree with both comments above - looking at the blogger's profile and judging by the music preferences listed, I think this critic would be much happier attending some of the performances along Branson's "Strip" than anything presented at the Kauffman Center.

that guy should move.

we've seen wonderful performances, most in the upper half of the seriousness scale.

we're so appreciative that our city has access to as many options as it does in a fantastic venue.

I would love to see some of the performances at Kauffman, but the seats are way beyond my budget. I'm retired on Social Security and cannot pop for even the cheap seats way up in the rafters. Most working folks can't afford it either. If you want to see high quality stuff, you may have to move to NYC or some other real, functioning town.
