I have seen numerous concerts and shows here. The venue is great. There are no bad seats. Sometimes for the concerts the music can be too loud (Dwight Yocum especially) but you can't beat the prices and the shows are good quality. For parking I would recommend parking across the street at the Cracker Barrel or next door at the... More

Great venue to see a show. 2 problems to account for: 1. Very limited parking. Most shows will require you to park across the highway in the outlets. 2. Not much of a refreshment bar for intermissions.

Recently we saw a performance of Vegas Legends. This was a first-class show from beginning to end. Such a diversified and multi-talented cast! Each tribute was performed with precision and feeling. Every person involved did a professional job. My favorite trbute, hard to choose one, was Elton John. Bennie and the Jets blew me away. Don't miss this show.

Plus: nice venue and acoustics, comfortable seats, ample, assisted parking, reasonable concessions, clean restrooms. Minus: stage not elevated enough to see from the floor seats, too many patrons ignore photo/video rules distracting others with lighted phones, and stage lighting issues on the performers were annoying. Overall, the bookings are varied and the performers were great but the experience was disappointing... More

This is a beautiful place to see a concert! We just got back from another great show. The talent is absolutely amazing and the tickets are reasonably priced. Great variety of singing, dancing, and song types. The concession stand is very reasonable, and you can take coffee and cookies into the show. Great date night!

Took my friend to see Vegas Legends as a birthday gift. We have seen many shows throughout the years! I feel we are a great judge of the shows. To begin, the quality of the performs,dancers,orchestra,singers is superior!!!! However the substance of the show is poor. The show highlights performers who were at one time Vegas "stars". The music in... More

The American Music Theater always has a fantastic show and the current show is no exceptions. The current show is "Vegas Legends". This always professionally directed, produced and performed. This theater is on Route 30 in the business district of Lancaster. It has many places to eat nearby and is across the street from an outlet mall. Plenty of parking... More

The American Music Theater is a wonderful venue in the heart of Lancaster, on RT 30, the main strip that goes through town. We have been here many times in the past and hope to be here in the future. The seats are comfortable and they have made the aisles between rows wide, so there is plenty of leg room.... More

Our first trip to this theatre which provides various forms of live entertainment will definitely not be our last. Comfortable seating and good views of the stage. Ours was a Gaither concert that was pure joy. Many different musical genres are available throughout the year. I'm sure you'll find one that appeals to you. Check them out on line.

Got to meet Jim Martin AMT owner and Bill Gaither of The Gaither Vocal Band backstage before the concert. What a wonderful venue and certainly a night to remember. The theater is beautiful and you can view the stage from any seat in the house. The Gaither's were awesome and the show was three hours long!! Nice snack bar. Theater... More
