The Folly Theater Presents a New Series

Updated: Jul 4, 2021

During the pandemic, the Folly Theater developed a monthly series, LIVE! from the Lounge, to help local artists stay engaged, have a safe and comfortable place to perform, and bring in a little income. This series started out very small with only 20 people allowed in the audience, spread out at a safe covid distance with masks required and temperature checks at the door. The performances were also recorded and premiered on Facebook Live and YouTube in the weeks following allowing these artists and their music to enter into more people’s homes. You can still find these amazing videos on our YouTube channel. Some of the past performances included Daisy Buckёt, Calvin Arsenia, Julia Haile, Maria Cuevas, Talya Groves, and many other outstanding local artists.

The series was so welcomed and well-received, the Folly has decided to continue LIVE! from the Lounge, focusing on the amazing and diverse local artists in Kansas City. The audience capacity has been raised to 45 still maintaining the cozy, lounge-like feel. And while there is a lounge-like feel, LIVE! from the Lounge are listening room events.

Here are our monthly featured artists for the rest of 2021:

July 15 - Danny Cox

August 12 – David Luther

September 9 – Eboni and the Ivories

October 14 – Pablo Sanhueza

November 4 – Vi Tran

All shows begin at 7:00 pm with doors opening at 6:30 pm. Tickets go on sale about a month out from each event and can be purchased on the Folly website at or you can call the box office at 816-474-4444.

We hope to see you there!
