Blithe Spirit

by Noel Coward
Dates: August 8-26, 2018
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Doug Weaver

When successful novelist Charles Condomine hires a psychic as research for his new book, he ends up encountering the unexpected – the ghost of his first wife! Now he must balance his new (and very much alive!) wife with an increasingly incensed ghost in this witty comedy of manners from Noel Coward. Widely considered a theatrical masterpiece, and certainly Coward’s most spooky story, this smart and supernatural comedy is filled with rich characters, as well as a few spirited and theatrical surprises.

Featuring Cinnamon Schultz, Coleman Crenshaw, Vanessa Severo, Jan Rogge, Matt Rapport, Cheryl Weaver & Margaret Shelby

A Moon for the Misbegotten

by Eugene O’Neill
Dates: September 12 – 30, 2018
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Mark Robbins

Kansas City Actors Theatre returns to the Tyrone family from our 2013 production “A Long Day’s Journey Into Night” in Eugene O’Neill’s final play, “A Moon for the Misbegotten.” KCAT artist Brian Paulette re-inhabits the role of Jamie Tyrone as he visits a recently-inherited tenement farm. There he connects with the salty Irish farmer Phil Hogan and his larger-than-life daughter, Josie. In a moving exploration of humanity at its basest and most beautiful, Jamie fights to come to grips with what he perceives to be his wasted life, while Josie faces her own long hidden desires, and the two lost souls spend an evening under the moonlight where the raw intensity of their true feelings is revealed. A rare sympathetic turn from the Nobel Laureate and Pulitzer Prize-winning O’Neill, this play offers powerful reflections on desire, family and sacrifice.

Featuring Brian Paulette, Ashley Pankow, Victor Raider-Wexler, Chris Roady & Charlie Spillers

Sensuous. Seductive. Sinister.

Directed by John Rensenhouse after his record-breaking KCAT production of Agatha Christie’s “And Then There Were None” last season, “Dracula” promises wickedly delicious fun, thrills, theatrical magic, and intense performances.

Death and the Maiden

by Ariel Dorfman
Dates: January 9 – 27, 2019
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Cinnamon Schultz

A one-time political prisoner now living in insolation is convinced she recognizes the voice of a good Samaritan as that of the tormentor from her captivity. Can it truly be the same man? At once global and intimate, this bracing Olivier Award-winning play that has become a contemporary classic considers both the social and personal implications of abuse and retribution that remain relevant today. Directed by Cinnamon Schultz after her deeply felt production of Sam Shepard’s “A Lie of the Mind” last season, this gripping story of guilt, suspicion, and revenge will be unforgettable. 

Featuring Vanessa Davis, Rusty Sneary & Robert Gibby Brand
