Folly Theatre history on "The Local Show"

In recent years, you may have dropped by the Folly Theater downtown for a performance by the Heartland Men's Chorus or City in Motion Dance Theater, or perhaps to hear a concert in the Harriman Jewel series.

Joyce DiDonato and Rosanne Cash will grace the stage there, this weekend. But decades ago, Kansas City came perilously close to losing the Folly to the wrecking ball, a fate that befell all of its contemporaries.

But as your about to see, in this edition of our performARTS series, in conjunction with KC Studio Magazine, against all the odds, this 112-year-old theater at 12th & Central is very much alive and well.
