Non-Profit - Theatre
1818 McGee, Kansas City, MO 64108
The Living Room is an unconventional art space in the Crossroads Arts District in Kansas City, Missouri.
Dedicated to creating an atmosphere that allows the audience to abandon their perception of “The Theater,” the two-stories of The Living Room is constantly being transformed, creating new and engaging performance spaces, to present thought-provoking works by local and published playwrights.
The Living Room was founded in 2010 by Rusty Sneary and Shawnna Journagan. Originally an auto showroom, the three story building was transformed into a performance space with the blood, sweat, passion and dedication of Sneary, Journagan and their friends and family in the KC community.
Aside from the unconventional playing space (which changes from show-to-show), what makes The Living Room unique is that the audience lounges in vintage chairs and couches while enjoying progressive and provocative performances. The space has been used not only for The Living Room’s past five seasons, but has also housed KC Fringe Shows, staged readings, concerts, private parties, and weddings.
