“Local gem with national reputation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2013

The Morris is one of Michiana's gems! There really isn't a bad seat in the house, even in the 2nd or 3rd balcony. The interior is so beautiful, the performances are top-notch whether it's comedy, a concert or a Broadway musical and the ticket prices are affordable for families. Parking is convenient and affordable and there are several restaurants to choose from within walking distance.

“Beautiful Old Theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013

The Morris was originally built in the 1920s and restored in 2000. It's a great place to see a concert in an intimate setting.

“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.
