Team San Jose — which manages four historic cultural theaters in Downtown San Jose on behalf the City of San Jose — launched a single, unified theater portal so theater patrons and potential performing arts promoters can more efficiently browse arts and entertainment content along with events taking place at the San Jose Civic (home to A-List concerts and events), Center for the Performing Arts (home to Broadway San Jose and Ballet San Jose), California Theatre (home to Opera San Jose, Cinequest Annual Film Festival and Symphony Silicon Valley), and Montgomery Theater (home to Children’s Musical Theater San Jose and Lyric Theatre of San Jose).
