Absolutely the most professional and enjoyable entertainment off Broadway. AMC is exactly what it says it is---great performances by wonderful singers and dancers. The productions all deserve awards. We are frequent visitors to AMC during the year and always in the Summer. You can bring anyone of any age and they will thoroughly enjoy the entertainment.

“Great Venue”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is a great place to attend concerts, shows and etc. There isn't a bad seat in the house! Seats are comfortable, and have a great view of the stage. We had attended several concerts here, and have always been pleased.

“Bright light from cell phone ruined night”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Attended Music of the Night show on Fri. June 13 and was treated to the bright light of a woman taking pictures and texting with her cell phone throughout the whole show. Only in the beginning was something said to her and after a while she continued. Why have rules if you don't enforce them. We have been to many shows at AMT but it will be a long time before we consider attending another show. I'm sure many others feel as we do.

AMTshows, Manager at American Music Theatre, responded to this review, 20 June 2014
Thank you for attending Music of the Night at AMT!

During that particular performance, we had a group of 20 media guests taking photos of the show, and do apologize for any inconvenience that the light from the phones may have caused. We do allow all guests to photograph our Original Shows at AMT, but we discourage any flash photography or video recording of the event.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience the light from the phones for that evening's performance may have caused and we hope to see you at AMT again soon.

“No complaints here (well,almost none)”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Modern,up to date 1,600 seat theatre.Book a wide variety of shows (a lot of oldies for us seniors) and the 2 in- house productions each year are professional and worth the money.Great acoustics.If you're a show-goer,and we are,you pay a $75 membership fee each year and have advance ticketing a few days before they go on sale to public.Great acoustics,comfortable seating,plenty of rest-rooms and elevator to balcony.Usually sold out,but easy access in & out of parking lot before & after show with aid of lot attendants.On main corridor with a wide variety of convenient chain & local restaurants.The only negative I've found is that in some cases,you have to order tickets to far in advance.
