Thank you for your amazing review! We were very proud when the Morris received the League of Historic American Theatres "2015 Outstanding Theater Award." The Morris truly is a gem in downtown South Bend!

Mezzanine seats are what we like best. Ushers are very helpful. Lovely setting for entertaining events. Have seen wonderful shows of different genres there. Sound is good.
