Went and Aden the Door Wow show. It was a wonderful time for everyone. The sound system is epic. Can't wait to go back and see another show.

The music and professionalism was excellent. Costumes and choreography also very good. Use of the singers was just a bit unusual. For example, instead of using one of the female vocalists as Christine in the Phantom roles, they used three. I guess this was so they all got the chance to perform. Also, the little boy playing the magician was... More

We LOVE the American Music Theatre and go as often as we can. We recently saw the AMT group's production of "Music of the Night." The group always puts on a great show whether it is their Christmas Special or other productions. This time it was the music by Andrew Lloyd Webber, which included songs from various Broadway plays such... More

We're been here before and enjoyed the Christmas show. This time we saw songs by Andrew Lloyd Weber. As with previous visit, the costumes were STUNNING and the voices of the performers, overall, were wonderful. The seats are extremely comfortable with lots of leg room and the sound, set, lighting are incredible! I'd highly recommend it.

The theatre was nice and the performers did a fine job. The kids who performed were particularly adorable. I was disappointed that they didn't perform more of the well-known tunes but I guess the licensing fees would have been too much. We went the first week the show opened and the theatre was barely half full.

This is a fabulous show if you enjoy the songs of Andrew Lloyd Webber. The whole production is excellent from the orchestra, singers, costumes and staging. We especially enjoyed the young children included in a lot of the numbers. Go, you will be entertained. .

Seating 1600 people, the American Music Theatre is a perfect venue for anyone who enjoys a great seat, great view, and great acoustics. This is not a venue where everyone is likely to be standing through-out the concert. The seating is excellent and there's no bad seat in the house. You feel close to the stage and entertainer(s) wherever you... More
