If you're going to any event at the San Jose Center for Performing Arts, consider having dinner and/or after dinner drinks at Paolo's. It's been there forever, and there's a reason for that! You can park in the structure, (enter on Woz Way), enjoy dinner, then just walk over the Guadalupe River bridge and you're at the Center! A whole evening of entertainment in one spot. :-)

They had mostly snacks and beverages available at the concessions. Didn't notice anything substantial to eat (wasn't looking, though). It's so close to downtown, so there's a lot of great dining options nearby for before or after.

This is the second time I have seen the show. I thought the music was great, and the acting didn't seem to be as great as the first time I saw it. Personally, I love the show because of the lighting design. It is so incredible and steals the show....continued

The musical was well performed and the music spectacular. I loved the style of it and the young actors were truly talented. I only wish I'd been closer to be able to see their faces as well as some of the detail of the show.
