I retired to Greenville three years ago. I knew the weather would be better than Upstate NY, where'd I'd spent more than 20 years, but I was worried about artistic/cultural activities could offer in the "upcountry" of the Carolinas. How relieved I was not just to know that Greenville had its own symphony, but that, after my first concert at... More

Who knew you'd get Broadway caliber in a smaller city like Greenville? The Peace Center brings some of the best shows and acts around! Many shows also let you go two hours before showtime and get into a "lottery" for $25 front row tickets!

The Peace Center has the most wonderful plays and musicals just off Broadway that are remarkably staged and a fabulous live orchestra. The seating is surprisingly comfortable with plenty of leg room and much handicapped access!

The Peace Center offers a great variety of entertainment from Broadway shows to thrilling Symphony performances and outstanding performances by sinlgle artists. There is something offered that will appeal to anyone..the ticket office is very accommodating and the expanded lobby and renovated outside are very helpful for patron use.

We have our company picnic here every year. Awesome atmosphere for families with kids. I would recommend if you are having a company picnic or party function this is the place to have it.

This theater was designed (by a gifted architectural team) and built to provide fine performing arts to Greenville; it did so for years until the present management came and proceeded to undermine, debase and cheapen it all. The offerings shifted from operas and symphonies to musicals, country and rock performers; the grounds were paved and finally even the building itself... More

In the heart of Greenville, SC, the Peace Center is a wonderful place to see a Broadway show, individual, artist or the Greenville Symphony. At about 2,500 seats the size allows for all seats to be close to the stage with good sight lines. Even seats in the top balcony are totally satisfactory. The city of Greenville is fortunate to...

Wonderful venue and delightful downtown Greenville. THe seats are comfortable and they have finally figured out the restroom needs of large crowds. Even the ladies room line moves along well during show intermissions--helped along by friendly restroom moniters that point out the empty stalls! There is no central aisle in the theater which surprises many patrons. We experienced a fire... More
