|A $13.7 million upgrade to Kansas City's Music Hall and Municipal Auditorium expanded the theater’s backstage, back-of-house, and support areas to accommodate larger productions and traveling national shows.|
|The show will go on in Kansas City’s beloved Music Hall and Municipal Auditorium thanks to a fast-track renovation and expansion project that brought the 72-year-old Art Deco playhouse up to 21st-century standards.
Completed in just six months—between performances of “The Nutcracker” and “Stomp”—the $13.7 million project expanded the theater’s backstage, back-of-house, and support areas to accommodate larger productions and traveling national shows.
