The Morris Performing Arts Center is beautiful for shows and concerts. If its a show you really want to see I recommend splurging on tickets that put you closer. Have seen many shows here but most recent was WICKED and regret sitting in 3rd balcony. Sometimes it's worth it to sit up front. All shows I have seen here were wonderful, RENT, Blue Man Group, ZZ Top, Third Day, CATS, Harry Connick. Sound is wonderful. A great place to sit is front row of first balcony. Also if you can catch a meal before the show go for it! The buffet is fun and desserts are plentiful, staff are very professional and helpful. Have never had a negative experience here. Enjoy!

The Morris Center for the Performing Arts is a beautifully restored 1920's theater. It was saved years ago from the wrecking ball by Mrs. E Morris. Today it serves the community as a venue for stage shows and concerts of both top performers and local productions. Reasonably priced show tickets. Parking nearby and many restaurants within a couple block area, as well as the Bistro in the lower level of the theater. Architecture is absolutely beautiful!

Have seen many concerts/shows here. Acoustics are good, seats in upper levels are best. Some tickets are a little pricey, but good shows nonetheless. Beautifully restored and the views outside are nice too. Parking in the nearby garages is ok.

My wife and I came to the Morris on 7/14 for the Harry Connick Jr performance. This theater is gorgeous, like something out of the roaring 20's, I suppose. The acoustics were fantastic as well. We had front row orchestra seats and the stage tapestries appearance was majestic, will definitely come back for another show!

Have attended a couple of shows at the Morris. This old theater still has vintage charm. Seats are reasonably comfortable and sight-lines from floor seats are mostly good. We saw CSN and Gordon Lightfoot there. Not a bad place for a concert.
