"Oh What a Lovely War" Marks First Theatrical Production in National WWI Museum

Feb 16, 2011

The scars of World War II still hadn't completely healed when London's Theatre Workshop began to develop its musical "Oh What a Lovely War" in the late 1950s. Perhaps that's why the troupe instead chose to explore World War I and, though the show was a hit that transferred to Broadway, it's not produced that often in the United States.

Kansas City, MO – The Kansas City Actors Theatre partners with UMKC Theatre to stage the show in a venue that couldn't be more appropriate: Kansas City's National World War I Museum.

"Oh What a Lovely War"
February 11 - February 27, 2011
National World War I Museum at Liberty Memorial
100 W. 26th Street, KCMO
