If you've ever seen a first-class seat on a plane, you know that the leg-room is really good. Imagine having an entire theater designed to give every attendee that first class feeling! The American Music Theater is perhaps the most comfortable theater in the tri-state region. And EVERY seat is good! The acoustics are excellent and the staff is great. Make sure you leave time to enjoy the Amish shops and restaurants in the area prior to your show. Well worth the time it takes to get there!!

Went to see Dion last Friday night, and THINK the show was good. Only "think" because for the most part supposedly background accompaniment was so loud, the vocals were all but drowned out!

We have been to other shows at AMT recently, for one, the Spring Doo Wop Cavalcade, and the audio was perfect, so don’t know what happened.

And on another topic, why are there so few seats in the lobby, especially for shows that draw an "older" crowd. We 70 and 80 somethings have trouble standing for the hour or so between arriving early enough to get decent parking, and the show doors opening!

We attended this show last night in Branson Missouri, it was a ton of fun! The band was amazing. Very talented musicians playing the best country music ever made. It was a great family environment and our kids even had a blast because they knew a lot of the songs. I enjoined how interactive the performers were with the audience and how they made time afterwards to meet with us, take a picture, and sign an autograph, our favorite part of our trip to Branson, #sistersrock! Go see the show!

We attended the Girl Named Tom concert on 5/28. While GNT is a fabulous sibling trio, the acoustics and over amplification made much of this even nearly unlistenable. The only parts of the concert that were remotely enjoyable were performed without the backup band. The issues may have been partly a result of our seating location about 11 rows back and near the end of row K (close to where their camera man was set up blocking an emergency exit, but that's another issue). Speaker placement was also a likely contributor. We have attended other AMT concerts that were enjoyed and will attend others in the future . . . with much, much greater attention paid to seat selection.

I have visited here about 5 times now. The place is clean and all seats are great. Staff is always friendly. I really enjoy coming here and I can't wait to visit for the next show! Saw Englebert a few times and just saw Riverdance!

Riverdance, 4/30, 2 pm. Best show we ever saw there. Top to bottom, this was a solid show. The dancers were all in sync and did a great job. The musicians are extremely talented. The Choreography and Set design was Topnotch. This was a wonderful show and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys this style of dance. Kudos to the entire troupe and support staff!

My wife and I come to the American Music Theater on a fairly regular basis for a reason. The folks at American Music Theater consistently book great shows and they do a great job with traffic control and taking care of you once you are on site. Go to their website and find an act that you want to see and go to the American Music Theater to see that act. I don't think that you will be disappointed.

This theater was amazing. Comfortable seating, free parking, easy to locate. What more could you ask for? It helps that Jay Leno put on a super performance. Family friendly and not political at all. Everyone should see Jay at least once. I guarantee you will love his show. Please check out the AMT website for a show schedule. They have something for everyone.

Saw Jay Leno last night and laughed the entire 90 minute show. One joke after another. Non- stop. His comedy is non political and full of family stories. Jay is a national treasure.

We seem to come here quite a bit each year for various musical performances. The last time it was for Kansas the band. As I have said before, they need to put in more seating in the lobbies. Even a padded bench would be great. People jam up around the entrances where the concessions, gift shop, restrooms, and t shirt sales are, which may be against the fire code. There is so much open lobby (on two levels) here, a bench or two along the many walls wouldn't hurt anything, especially for the disabled. They have enough parking spaces and designated seats there, why not provide more so that everyone wouldn't have to congregate and clog up the same areas? One day I may not be able to walk or climb stairs, so I'm sure I'd appreciate knowing that there was a bench or a chair to rely on.

Thank you for leaving a review. While we aren't able to provide seating for all of our guests in the lobby, we are in the process of redesigning part of our lobby and waiting area to include more seating. We hope to welcome you to AMT again!
