Social Event at Midland Theater featuring Quixotic

Join us at the historic Midland Theater for some of Kansas City’s best Barbeque from Jack Stack’s!  After dinner you’ll be entertained by Kansas City’s own Quixotic Fusion.  A melting pot of dance, aerial acrobatics, projection mapping, high fashion, and original live music, Quixotic is a cornucopia of mystical majesty that enraptures audiences who have never even dreamed a night at the theater could be this much fun.  (Please note that there is a light show associated with this performance.  Anyone sensitive to flashing, or fast moving lights should be aware.)  After the show, stick around…there will be a DJ playing our favorites and we’ll open up the dance floor.
