This theater is a historic show place in South Bend. The interior is ornate and covered in gold in many areas. The sound system and stage have been updated. Not a bad seat in the theater.

Thank you for your comments on the beautiful, historic Morris. Although FLASHDANCE may not not been your favorite musical, we hope you might like some of the other upcoming Broadway shows this season -- BUDDY-THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY, 42nd STREET, or THE BOOK OF MORMON.
