The Christmas show this year is spectacular! We have enjoyed their show in previous years, but this year it is outstanding! The talent, costumes, orchestra and stage decor all make for an excellent performance! Thank you, all!!!

We have seen a number of shows at AMC - every one of them have been top notch - and I don’t think there’s a bad seat in the house

We received tickets as an early Christmas gift and went the week before Christmas. Best gift EVER!! We enjoyed the show very very much and even bought tickets for the couple that gave us tickets as a “thank you”. We will be back!
