Re: “The Buffalo Room at the Westport Flea Market

A poignant portrayal of a Vietnamese family's escape from Vietnam and journey to the Midwest, through narration and original music. I truly enjoyed this play, and highly recommend it. Vi Tran is a gifted writer, actor and musician and his supporting cast is very talented too. I have known many refugees from Vietnam over the past 35 years, and Vi's family's story is a beautiful tribute not only to his parents' courage and love, but to all immigrant families coming to America.

Re: “Uptown Arts Bar

This is gem of a spot in a reviving neighborhood. This bar features a wide selection of drinks including an expansive list of cocktails. The food is top-rate and they spare no expense on ingredients from the chips & salsa to the grilled paninis and their specialty pizzas on artisan flat-bread. The back of the club is a wonderful, intimate space used for music, poetry, comedy and just about any other kind of performing art there is. There is a huge emphasis on promoting local talented artists (including the art hanging on the walls). They also have an upstairs bar available for events and the balcony allows you to enjoy a smoke without missing out on the music.

Re: “Uptown Arts Bar

The Uptown Arts Bar is awesome. The bartenders are uber-knowledgeable, and the management is totally committed to furthering the performance arts in Kansas City. There's something going on almost every night. And the location. God, could there be a better location?

Re: “William Inge Center for the Arts

This is an amazing festival. It allows participants to hob-knob with professionals in a small, relaxed atmosphere. Playwrights such as Arthur Miller, Neil Simon, Stephen Sondheim, Kander & Ebb, August Wilson, John Guare, Terrance McNally, Tina Howe, Sheldon Harnick and many other great American playwrights have been honored and present at this festival. I have had the unique opportunity of having wonderful one on one conversations with Harnick, Howe, and Lanford Wilson. The boyhood home of William Inge is used to display scenes from Inge & past honorees. What a treat to watch the opening scene of Inge's "Picnic" on the porch that inspired this Pulitzer Prize drama. Not only do you get to meet playwrights, but professionals in the theatre world from both New York & Los Angeles. John Lloyd Young, tony winner for "Jersey Boys" performed at the festival, as well as Bernadette Peters, Hal Linden and Judd Hirsch. You don't know what you are missing until you attend this charming event. People that try it, come back again & again.
