"I am honored to have been asked to lead this incredible team in telling this story," remarked Kincaid. "The Secret Garden is the show that led me to a life in theater, and to now have the privilege of bringing it to life in Kansas City is a true dream come true. I cannot wait for audiences to hear this exquisite score performed by the very best talents Kansas City has to offer."

The full creative team features scenic design by Yi-Chien Lee, lighting design by Shelbi Arndt, costume design by Daniella Toscano, sound design by Jon Robertson, Assistant Direction by Emily Shackelford, and production stage management by Lacey Willis.

Review: Cirque du Soleil's CORTEO At T-Mobile Center

If, by chance, you are still looking for something fun to do with your visitors this holiday weekend, I highly recommend Cirque du Soleil’s incredible “Corteo” now playing at the T-Mobile Center. This is family entertainment of the first order; unlike almost anything you will ever have witnessed. It will re-awaken your childhood dream of “running off to join the circus.”
