Folly Theater

Folly Theater was constructed at the turn of the 20th Century and was originally intended to be a variety show and parody house. Over the next century it developed into a vibrant and popular entertainment venue for jazz. In fact, the theater is a vital asset to the jazz community and legends such as Dave Brubeck, George Shearing and Ravi Coltrane have all played here. David Sanchez, Jane Monheit, and Rene Marie are locals that continue to maintain the city's tradition of live jazz performances also. It also presents the Folly Children's Series which brings national-level children's theater troupes to Missouri.

Gem Theater

The Gem was constructed in 1912 using a Baroque-style motif in its architecture and was originally planned as a movie house in the historic 18th & Vine District. Today, it is a live music, dance and theater stage that hosts various acts, from musicals to live jazz, the Gem is always abuzz with activity. The theater is run under the benevolent auspices of the American Jazz Museum (located a few doors down on 18th) and is most notably known for its "Jammin' at the Gem" series which features some of the best musicians in the world.
