The Ballad of Lefty & Crabbe

  • The Living Room Theatre 1818 McGee St Kansas City (map)


The hit musical comedy returns to The Living Room for a four week run! This audience favorite has been expanded and revamped with new scenes, new music, and some spectacular new faces.

Set in the early 20th century during the decline of vaudeville and the rise of Hollywood, The Ballad of Lefty & Crabbe tracks the journey of an ultra-sharp but down-on-their-luck comedy duo as they navigate the rapidly changing world of entertainment.

This witty and gleefully ridiculous musical comedy (from the team that brought you Milking Christmas) won a Best of Fringe designation in 2015, packed houses in its 2017 run, and last year won several awards including Best of the Fest at the Chicago Musical Theatre Festival!

Doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain.
