AMT is a wonderful place to see a live performance. There is not a bad seat in the house and ticket prices are very fair for the high quality entertainment provided. Highly recommended.

Various artists. Tickets available online. Parking was plentiful. Casual dress is acceptable as the theatre is in a tourist area (across the street from many outlets and several restaurants). Artists often sell and sign their cds in the theatre lobby.

The theater is not very large; however, I prefer the orchestra section vs the mezzanine. I do not care for the balcony. In the orchestra section the best rows are F through M so you are not looking up at the stage but out... More
