You'll probably never see the coolest spot in the new NorShor theatre

NorShor Theatre

If a building could sigh, the new NorShor Theatre in downtown Duluth has been waiting to exhale for decades.

Finally ready to make it's debut - again (Temple Opera House 1869, Orpheum Theatre 1910, NorShor Theatre 1940 and a number of others between 1974 and 2010) -  the NorShor has been lovingly restored and upgraded over millions of dollars and countless hours since June of 2016.

This morning, we talk to the man who probably knows the theatre best.

The NorShor opened for a sneak peek in November.  You can see some before and after photos and take a look around here.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
