(July 30, 2015) NASHVILLE – The Morris Performing Arts Center located in South Bend, Indiana received the 2015 Outstanding Historic Theatre Award given by League of Historic American Theatres (LHAT) to historic theatres that have demonstrated excellence in community impact, quality of programs and services, and quality of physical restoration. Former winners include the Fabulous Fox in Atlanta, New York City Center and Playhouse Square in Cleveland to name a few.
The Morris has been named to Pollstar Magazine’s Top 100 Theatres in the United States based on ticket sales every year since 2000 and has received the Facilities Magazine Prime Site Award every year since 2006.
“Since 2000 over $25 million in renovations and restoration have occurred at the Morris,” said Stein, “and that level of commitment to the preservation of a historic landmark is extraordinary.” Morris Executive Director, and the driving force behind the theatre’s success, Dennis Andres remarked while receiving the award, “Over $8 million for those renovations was raised through private donations from the citizens of South Bend.” (more…)

Here’s some bad news if you’re a fan of the winning 2000 comedy “Bring It On.” “Bring It On: The Musical” has little in common with the film, save for the cheerleading concept and some themes involving the culture clash between White and Black teenagers.
On the plus side: Who cares? The stage musical, which premiered on Broadway in 2012 and is now touring the United States, is an energetic, exhilarating blast. It’s sharp-witted and funny, and the acrobatic choreography continually threatens to stop the show.
Thrilling, exciting, one of the top feel good productions of the Kansas City theatrical season best describes Bring It On: The Musical, now playing at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts. The play inspired by Bring It On the movie opened on Tuesday February 11. The touring cast performs music by Tom Kit and Lin-Manuel Miranda, lyrics by Amanda Green and Lin-Manuel Miranda and libretto by Jeff Whitty. Andy Blankenbuehler directs and choreographs this high energy and entertaining spectacle.
The Tony nominee for Best Musical combines fantastic vocals and exciting aerobatics to tell the tale of friendship, deceit, purpose, and compassion. Half of the touring cast comes from theatrical backgrounds while the other half comes from competitive cheer leading backgrounds. (more…)
