Pitch Perfect 

Among Bar Natasha, Quality Hill and the bathroom mirrors of every singing waiter in town, it’s almost easier to find Broadway tunes in Kansas City than our homegrown jazz. Stars Karen Errington and Tim Scott separate Musical Theatre Heritage’s A Night on the Town revue from the rest. They’re not only strong singers steeped in the history of the Great White Way but also lively, unpredictable performers, adept at comedy and heartbreak and frequently guilty of stealing shows from their top-billed peers. With them sharing a bill, it’s hard to guess who’ll be doing the stealing. Scott thinks it might be Errington. “I once told her, at an audition, that I wished I could sit in the back and watch people’s reaction when she opens her mouth and begins to sing,” he says. “The auditors are usually scribbling down their lunch orders or checking their watches. I just imagine that when Karen starts to sing, there must be a collective AR-OOO.” Here, he imitates the noise made, in moments of surprise, by Scooby-Doo. He adds, “That happens to me every time I hear her.” Performances run tonight through Saturday at 8 at the Met Space, 1824 Walnut, 816-221-6987. Tickets cost $20 ($15 for students and seniors).
Thu., Aug. 30, 8 p.m.; Fri., Aug. 31, 8 p.m.; Sat., Sept. 1, 8 p.m.
