I went to see Wicked, the musical, on its last showing the other night. The venue staff was helpful, and from my seat I enjoyed a clear view of the stage, and heard the songs perfectly.

For all the money that they charge , you would expect at least some food to be available. The bearers have no idea if any food is sold. They sell fancy cocktails , but apart from chips - which really isnt any food , there isn't any. For having to host three hour plus shows, they should at least carry... More

This was only the second play I had ever been to and this will have me going back for more. Great musical and storyline. Even had a few funny lines included.

Beautiful theatre. Easy in and easy out. Seats are pretty comfortable, considering...... They host national touring company's, so the quality of the productions are very good

This place is the BEST. Located close to affordable parking, a hop skip and jump off of the Light Rail, and surrounded by the best in the west as far as restaurants go. I just saw Jersey Boys with a group of girlfriends and we had an absolute fabulous night out. I am really forward to doing it again for... More

We are season ticket holders and really enjoy the venue. We really love seeing our favorite bartender John when we are there!

Has a great lineup of shows. Place well maintained. No on site parking, but plenty of paid parking within blocks. Can get crowded at intermission and ending. Best seats near front center.

I attended the San Jose Ballet and it was magnificent. The first act was Carmen, while the second was an original one, 'the upper room'. I tremendously enjoyed the show. The Center itself seems quite small, and in need of some work. i was lucky enough to catch the show in such short notice. Haven't had to chance to check... More

I have always wished there was a center aisle at the CPA but nowadays the building just seems old and ugly. The Flint Center in Cupertino is a much better maintained building even though it has the same center aisle problem
