“High Class”
Reviewed May 15, 2012

The most luxurious place with an old-time look. Many performers have come here and been astonished with the entire theatre.

“Very cramped seats, decent acoustics”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We went for the first time to Morris to see Blue Man Group. The performance was excellent, the sound is good, and the theater is pretty enough. My husband and I are both thin, but even we were cramped in the seats. Not sure how the "average" person fits in. Very little leg room. Not sure I'd go back. Restrooms are nice however.

“Great Facility With Just Average Acts”
Reviewed March 15, 2012

This is a grand old facility that houses some great architecture and has been very nicely restored. The acts they get here have been steadily declining over the past few years though. You can only have so many black comedy specials and rap festivals before your average concert goer or symphony attendee gets kind of turned off. They need to get some better talent moving through and up the ante a bit.
