In an effort to purchase the building where The Unicorn Theatre produced its most successful plays, an aggressive and highly successful Capital Campaign launched at the beginning of its 40th anniversary season, ended one month ahead of its goal and the building has been signed over to The Unicorn Theatre, according to a spokesman.

Soon after The Unicorn announced its 40th anniversary season the opportunity arose to purchase the building, which allows the facility to decease operating costs and gain complete control of the facility and make needed renovations–including a new roof.

“We are thrilled to announce that, April 17, the campaign has been successfully completed, one month ahead of its goal, and the building has been signed over to Unicorn Theatre. The overwhelming support from donations and pledges has ensured 3828 Main Street is the permanent home of bold, new plays in Kansas City,” Cynthia Levin, producing artistic director said.

Further, the MainStage of The Unicorn Theatre boasts a new name in honor of the successful campaign and years of dedicated leadership from Levin. The name change takes effect with the theatre’s 41st consecutive season. To honor, celebrate, and reward Levin’s vision, determination, passion and unwavering leadership for the last 35 years, the Board of Directors unanimously voted to rename The Mainstage, The Levin Stage, a spokesman said.

“We want to bestow this well-deserved honor upon you to show our gratitude for your dedication to the Unicorn Theatre and for your contribution to live theater in Kansas City, the board stated in a letter to Levin. “We honestly feel that without you (your talent, leadership, ambition, enthusiasm, tenacity, personal sacrifice, connections and vision), the Unicorn would not be here.”

Unicorn Theatre is currently in its 40th Anniversary Season, with two production remaining for this season “Water by the Spoonful,” and “By the Way, Meet Vera Stark.” To learn more about the final two productions, purchase tickets and get information about the upcoming 2014-2015 season visit: unicorntheatre.org.
