“I like this place-too bad it's so far from me.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Great place to hear concerts, see shows, etc. Beautiful theatre. Not too hard to get to. Parking was not an issue. Wonderful building in downtown South Bend. Only sorry it's a bit far to drive, especially when you get out late.

“Wonderful place for great shows!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2013

We have been to several concerts and productions at the Morris. The building itself is stunning, the acoustics are great, the seats are comfortable, and there isn't really a bad seat in the house. Maybe it was just me, though, but the seats in the highest two balconies tend to mess with my eyes (I do wear glasses), so I try to get seats on the floor or first balcony only.

“Historic Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

This old theater was completely restored to it's original glory with much gold leaf artistry. I find it awe enspiring. This is the home of the South Bend Symphony, Broadway Theater, and many other name acts.
