Make it a night out at Starlight! Prior to each Broadway show, patrons may enjoy one of two buffet-style dining choices in the Applause Club, have a drink on the Encore Deck, visit the Ovation Museum, attend a free backstage tour or enjoy local talent on the Spotlight Stage.
This year, Starlight is pleased to welcome a new executive chef to the table, who serves up delicious dinners in the Applause Club all season long. And word has spread—at Beautiful – The Carole King Musical, the indoors buffet sold out numerous nights!
“We had the most wonderful night starting with dinner at the indoor buffet,” one Starlight patron wrote in a recent survey. “[We] loved the show and the friendliness of staff. Everything was perfect!”’
A Kansas City-area native, Chef Bear Cohen's past experience includes Team Chef for Sporting Kansas City and Area Manager Catering Chef for Worlds of Fun. He also served as Executive Chef for numerous hotels in the Kansas City, Tulsa and Sedalia areas. Plus—he’s an impressive barbecue master—diners will enjoy delectable, straight-from-the-smoker meats this summer at Starlight!
“Every experience at Starlight is amazing,” another patron said. “The venue itself, concessions, staff and performances exceeds expectations in every way.”
Patrons may dine inside the Applause Club with the Best of Broadway Buffet, which includes a rotating menu prepared exclusively for each show, or on the patio at the KC Barbecue Buffet, which will be a fixed menu throughout the summer. Each buffet includes salad options, chef-prepared entrees and side dishes, and desserts to satisfy those with a sweet tooth. Water, tea, lemonade and soft drinks are also included, alcoholic beverages are available for purchase at a full cash bar. Gratuity is not included.
