The Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts is a mega-modern, state-of-the-art facility encompasses two awe-inspiring performance venues: The Muriel Kauffman Theatre and the Helzberg Hall.

The Muriel Kauffman Theatre seats 1,800 in ultra-plush, 22- and 24-inch wide seats, which include the Figaro supertitle system; a monitor mounted on the back of each seat shows the words sung or spoken by performers onstage. Patrons decide if they want to see the titles, and then they select the language of their choice for their individual screen.

In the oval-shaped Helzberg Hall, the stage extends into the auditorium, thus placing 40 percent of the 1,600 seats alongside the stage. The distance from the stage to Helzberg Hall’s farthest seat is slightly more than 100 feet. Helzberg Hall has a 5,548-pipe Casavant Freres pipe organ; one of the finest concert-organs in the country.

These theatres host Broadway production companies, renowned orchestras and bands, top national and international entertainers, artists and performance troupes. Also, the Kauffman Center serves as the home performance venue for the Kansas City Ballet, the Lyric Opera of Kansas City, and the Kansas City Symphony Orchestra.

The Kauffman Center is located on Broadway Avenue, just south of the Power & Light District and the Sprint Center.
