Folly Theater News

The Folly Theater Supports the Black Lives Matter Movement

For more than 120 years, the Folly Theater has stood with Kansas City in good times and difficult times.  She has welcomed artists and performers from racially and culturally diverse backgrounds as they have taken the stage.  It’s because of those talented artists that the Folly continues to shine a light on Kansas City’s rich and diverse cultural heritage.

We are appalled by the senseless murders that have taken place, and we acknowledge the pain inflicted on so many families including those of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor. We denounce the injustices against underrepresented communities and commit to working alongside city leaders, artists, and other performing arts organizations to advocate for change, equity, and inclusion. We invite you to join us as we all unite in fighting the inequalities that exist in our nation. 

The Folly believes #BlackLivesMatter.
