Title of show Inspire. The music and singers were fantastic. The only critique is that the female dresses were see-thru which distracted the audience.

This is the second time we have traveled down to lancaster to the American Music Theater. The building is perfectly set up for performances. If there is one "downside", it is parking. Lots of it but quite an adventure once the show ends. Bring a book with you and wait for a half- hour...then it will be easy to depart!

If you are in the area, this is a great venue for a show. Easy to get tickets, parking is very good, and the exit after the show is well managed. The shows we attended were all family friendly. The seating was very good with no obstructions. The balcony offers "bleacher" style seating making it easy to see over the... More

While the show was very good, the prices are very very high, $75 for the upper level just a few rows from the top. Also if you don't arrive early, be ready to park across the street in a strip mall and go on a 10 minute walk that includes crossing the always busy Rt 30.

This is an excellent theater with a constant stream of popular celebrities, as well as its own musical reviews (3 for extended periods during the year). The facility itself is top notch.

We went to see Weird Al, Smokey Robinson and Jack Hanna, all on different nights of course. It's a very nice place to see people perform, you can actually sit close enough that the screens, while there, usually aren't necessary. The shows that AMT put on during the week like the Christmas shows are really great also.

I secured two tickets to see The Texas Tenors just a few weeks before the performance. I apologized to my friend who I was treating to the show that the seats were not going to be the greatest since I bought the tickets very late after they went on sale.
