Drag is not something I thought I’d really enjoy, especially on a Wednesday. But when my friend called me at midnight and asked if I’d want to go with him the next day, I said yes, because spontaneous adventure is necessary for a healthy life. Going into the show, I was a little hesitant, because I had no i...

There were two ballet dancers and a clown who came on between acts. The next memorable act was three extreme...

Jon Bellion is a pop singer who came to Kansas City, MO, Oct. 11 for his third Human Condition Tour at The Midland Arvest Bank Arena.

As someone who gets very bored very easily, I find it difficult to watch just one show at a time. Even binge-watching can get messy, because I’ll quit in the middle of an episode and not come back for months. I never had this issue with Netflix’s original show “Jessica Jones.” As Netflix is con...
