Every Saturday, I share my weeklyย Artist Date.

The Morris Marquee

This week’s date was extra special. My husband and I went to see Wicked.

Wicked Tickets & Program

Wicked played in Chicago for 3-1/2 years, and I managed not to go even though I kept saying I wanted to go. So, when I heard that Wicked was coming to South Bend, I made sure to be early in line for tickets.

Approaching The Morris

The musical event was at The Morris Performing Arts Center. Originally called the Palace Theatre, ย it was built in 1921 and at that time was the most modern theater in the country.

The Morris Front

The history of The Morris Performing Arts Center is fascinating. In May 1998, The Morris closed its doors in order to begin a complete 17 million dollar restoration & renovation.

The Morris Interior

When The Morris re-opened in March 2000, the newly restored theater had a brand-new, state-of-the-art stage house and the interiors were restored to their original 1921 splendor.

Wicked Green Fountain

The evening of the musical was super exciting. There were fans in witches hats and the fountain in front of The Morris sprayed green water.

Wicked Stage

It was a breathtaking production.

A wonderful Artist Date.
