There are probably more theater artists in their 20s and 30s in Kansas City than ever before. Some are UMKC graduates. Others went to Stephens College in Columbia. Some went to New York and came back. Many stay here. Todd Lanker and his fiancee, Ashlee Lapine, teach at UMKC and are appearing in “Lend Me a Tenor” at the New Theatre.
