American Musical Theatre of San Jose announced Dec. 1 that it was ceasing operations effectively and that its slate of upcoming shows, both self-produced and touring, were canceled.
A call today from the press office of the touring musical Chicago refutes that claim, and a press representative said that the show will go on as planned and that other producing organizations are in discussion to take over production reins for the San Jose dates (Jan. 14-18).
The representative said that tickets ($20-$75) remain on sale at 888-455-7469 and at www.amtsj.org. The AMTSJ Web site remains operational and there is, as of yet, no mention of the company’s woes.
The touring production stars Tom Wopat as lawyer Billy Flynn.
