If you are in the Kansas City area the next 11 days, you might consider attending “Songs of the Great War,” a production of the Musical Theater Heritage at Crown Center.  The show features 20 songs from the early 20th century, and is sponsored by the National World War I Museum and Memorial.  The show runs October 6 through 16.
