Will a remake of Annie ever be as good as Jay-Z's "Hard Knock Life"? Was Judy Collins' performance of "Send in the Clowns" on The Muppet Show in 1977 not an epic example of creepiness? Rediscover show tunes at the Kauffman Center (1601 Broadway, 816-994-7200) when Steven Reineke, music director of the New York Pops, conducts the Heartland Men's Chorus for Broadway Rocks. The Lion King, Wicked, Mamma Mia and Rent are well-represented during this three-night run (which began Thursday). Hear the high-energy program tonight at 8. Tickets cost $38–$84. See hmckc.org.
