Robert Trussell | 'Hair' peddles hippie nostalgia to a receptive KC audience

Maybe the producers of “Hair,” which runs through Sunday at the Kauffman Center, sent the young cast to hippie school, or maybe they’re just actors doing their jobs.

Sam Mellinger | Wild and crazy Super Bowl had a little of everything

A sporting event with enough cache that corporations elbow each other for the right to pay $4 million for 30 seconds of your attention is apparently a hair dryer away from needing the breaker switches flipped back.

Minus key contributors, K-State still routs Texas 83-57

Even without Rodney McGruder, who was benched most of the game in foul trouble, and Will Spradling, who left with a broken nose, No. 18 Kansas State was too much for the Texas Longhorns.

Sara Smith | 'The Americans' revisits the Cold War with spies like us

“The Americans,” FX’s smart espionage drama, puts the enemy in Guess jeans and an Oldsmobile with Juice Newton on the eight-track. Starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys as a deep-undercover, accent-free Boris and Natasha, the show rewinds the clock to the Cold War and turns the black-and-white America-first mentality of the early ’80s inside out.

Robert Trussell | 'Blacktop Sky' is experimental, poetic and remote

At times in “Blacktop Sky,” which had its world premiere at the Unicorn Theatre, Christina Anderson’s writing is vivid and compelling.
