I have never been disappointed in a show! My husband and I lived in Boston and went to Broadway touring shows monthly, so we were skeptical about a non-Broadway production. We went to see Big River a few years ago and enjoyed it so much, we signed up for the whole season! We love the fact that from the peninsula, San Jose is less complicated (parking, traffic) but we don't skimp on quality. The coolest thing about AMTSJ is that you can rent the costumes from the productions. I rented a flapper type dress for a 30th birthday party and it fit great and wasn't flimsy like something I could get at a normal costume rental company. And the price was not too bad (I honestly don't recall, but I'm a cheapskate, so it had to be reasonable).
