“[Love] found an authentic note in every move she made.”
“As the too-cool-for-Kansas girl, Love is perfect: at turns playful, distant, resolute and lost. …the relationship between Almond and Love feels genuinely sensual… they move as if magnetically bonded to each other.”
“Lucky audiences get to enjoy the unique experience of being just a few feet away from the charismatic rock icon as she spreads her artistic wings.”
Hollywood Reporter
“[Ms. Love’s] eyes have a transfixing quality and she moves with a slinky sexual tread. …a single sustained note can seem to simultaneously contain a plea, a wound and a threat.”
The New York Times
“Unsurprisingly awesome… a model for the album experience in the post-LP environment. It merged the headphone fantasia of bedroom listening with the smell-the-sweat shared experience of a club show.”
Rolling Stone

“Unsurprisingly awesome!” Rolling Stone
"Love's voice remains a powerful, visceral instrument and when it harmonizes with Almond's, the effect is magnificent!" - Rolling Stone

Experience Courtney Love & Todd Almond up close in the 200-seat Carnival Studio Theater!

Kansas City Choir Boy is a highly inventive theatrical piece told entirely through music about love altered by unexpected fate. A mystery told through flashbacks, the show tells the story of two lovers in small town America who separate when one goes in search of destiny and then disappears. 

Borrowing themes from ancient myth, the show features songs by acclaimed composer/lyricist Todd Almond performed by rock icon Courtney Love and Almond. They are joined by a chorus of sirens and a string quartet with musical direction by David Bloom. Directed by Kevin Newbury, Kansas City Choir Boy is a love song for the computer age and a product of the 24-hour news cycle that feeds on the stories of the anonymous “missing.”

Meet Courtney Love & Todd Almond!
Limited VIP Meet & Greet Packages are available (Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday performances only).

This performance contains strobe lights.
