I have been to The Peace Center for many different types of performances over the years with my husband to my elementary aged granddaughters. Acoustics are great, not a bad seat in the house! We are very blessed to have such a wonderful facility as this here in Greenville, SC. Plenty of parking available and wonderful restaurants within walking distance.

I saw Wicked and a Jason Mraz concert in the Peace Center, and I loved both events. The Broadway show was on par with the other performances I'd seen in much larger venues, and the concert was very intimate in the smaller setting and the acoustics are really nice. There's not really a bad seat in the house, I've sat... More

Peace Center is a great venue. We travel about 2 1/2 hours to come to events there. They have great offerings and there are lots of restaurants to choose from in the area

Have been to the peace center for quite a variety of shows. The Japanese drummers, Brian Adams unplugged, the nut cracker ballet, and musicals. The peace center has excellent acoustics and very well planned seating. From every seat in the house there is good view of the stage. Can highly recommend watching a show there!! Ticket prices come in a... More

A modern theater with a wonderful staff. We have gone to 5 shows there. Once, we had to change tickets and found the experience easy. The theater features no center aisle so be prepared to crawl over or be crawled over by other patrons. Parking is available nearby just be prepared to pay for it as free on-street parking is...

We've attended symphony concerts, choral programs, and Broadway shows at the Peace Center. The materials used in the construction assure that the acoustics are amazing, and there isn't a bad seat in the house. The recent renovations to the lobby area and addition of a restaurant have enhanced the experience.

We've been twice: Book of Mormon in Nov and Stomp in Jan. Both great shows. High seats in the upper back are very steep, and gives you the sensation you might fall. There are rails, thankfully, but it might bother some. Sight lines and acoustics are great, even from the nosebleed seats. My only complaint is the high online fees... More

They strive to bring the very best shows to Greenville, SC and we so appreciate it ! Every event is always very well attended or a 'sell out"! What speaks... More

Enjoyed seeing Wicked at the Peace Center recently. The performances that I have seen were well worth the money. Peace center has been well designed and seats are comfortable. I do wish seat rows had more of a rise between levels. I had a gentleman in front of me that I had to keep looking around his head. If our... More
