Another Gem to our beautiful downtown. Saw The Wizard of Oz at the Gunter Theater and was amazed. The Seating and Acoustics are terrific. The Children's Production of this classic was wonderful. For the person who complained about the cost of Parking, you don't have to pay the marked up fees near the Center, use any of the available parking... More

Anytime I get tickets to an event/show here I get so excited. The venue is absolutely breathtaking. Everyone here is always super helpful and incredibly nice.

Wife and I go to events here a few times yearly. Latest was the the Broadway show Cinderella - it was a fabulous show. There have been upgrades to the lobby and exterior in front. Anyone within a 90 minute drive of Greenville should visit here for a show - no need to go to Charlotte or Atlanta.

As Peacekeepers, we've seen some excellent productions, including _Wicked_, _Spamalot_, _The Wizard of Oz_, and have seen some very enjoyable comedians, like Louis Black and Bill Maher. The only drawback is the number of bathrooms available for women. Women almost always have to wait in line.

We attended the Gipsy Kings concert here in August. The whole atmosphere was fabulous. The staff was very friendly, the place was spotlessly clean. The arena was very well organized and the concert was fabulous. We have seen several concerts and plays here, and have had great experiences.

A beautiful night in downtown Greenville (after a lovely rain) we walked over to the Peace Center after a delightful dinner downtown and saw the Peace Center lite up so beautifully. The Center is located in the middle of the downtown and it's one of the things that makes Greenville. SC so special. They bring wonderful shows and music of... More

This is the best venue in the area and it is acoustically almost flawless regardless of your seat. That does not mean that all the seating is the same. We prefer the first row balcony center for music performances but for live stage shows the lower center seats are perfect. Another thing that makes Peace Center so great is the... More

My wife and I visited the Peace Center and it was our second time in the new building. Conveniently located near Greenville's finest restaurants downtown. Try Rick Irwin's or Soby's, but before you do make sure you get reservations in advance. The Peace Center has some of the best acoustics, especially if you like jazz or classical. Great venue.

The Peace Center is a fantastic arts center in downtown Greenville. Each year this cultural venue offers a variety of performances including classical, jazz, country, pop, comedy, and Broadway shows. Last night we attended the Broadway show "Cinderella". We had purchased tickets at the last minute so we had seats in the Founder's Circle. Even though we were not in... More

The Peace Center continues to grow its theatre season--offering better shows than in previous years. The seats are very comfortable, you can pre-order your intermission drinks, and it is beautifully appointed inside and outside. The only drawback to this theatre is parking---be prepared to spend at least $10-$20 in that part of downtown.
