Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll was the best play they ever put on in the space OR AT LEAST IT HAD THE BEST TRAILER. Here's the sad news about gentrification destroying the local culture it hoped to enjoy. Take a peek:

Higher rents force another Crossroads business to leave

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The Living Room Theatre will take its final bow after their 10th season at 1818 McGee Street. Higher rents are driving them out of the Crossroads Art District. "Due to soaring city taxes and rental costs in The Crossroads Arts District, we can sadly no longer afford to stay," the theater posted on their website.

With rents going higher and water and sewer taxes on the rise for years to come. No wonder more people keep going to N.K.C.

Notice that the headline only refers to "rents", but the quote is "Soaring city taxes and rental costs." You would almost think they don't want you to notice the part about the taxes. Rents, of course can be blamed on EEVVVIILLLLL private property owners.
