We've attended several symphony performances and the sound was wonderful wherever we sat. The building itself is beautiful and the staff, from box office to ushers, are welcoming and helpful. It's a must-see whenever you're in downtown Greenville.

Saw the Frankie Valli concert at the peace center. The ushers went out of their way to be nice. Had some help in getting tickets from a fantastic person in marketing named Katherine. This event center is there to help.

My husband and I have gone to the Peace Center many times. We enjoy the symphony and the many musical performances that come to Greenville. The newly renovated interior is very open and there is a lovely view of the Reedy River from Genevieve's.

We'll do many reviews because we support The Peace Center and go to as many of the productions as we can. Rent was done by the Greenville Light Opera Works and was very good. It was the first night of the performance so it may not have been perfect, but very enjoyable and the Gunther theater is small and inviting.... More

We were thrilled that we could just walk up to it from our hotel. The auditorium size is reasonable so everyone has a good view of the stage. Seating was comfortable with easy access to restrooms. Surrounding area has good restaurants and nightlife. They appear to book diverse shows for everyone to enjoy. Will be visiting again!

I have attended many different types of events here - symphony, musicals, plays, etc - and am always thrilled with the atmosphere and acoustics. We are fortunate to have such a great venue with such diverse types of entertainment in our city.

Since the facility opened its doors and became the anchor for a South End revival in Greenville, the quality of performances has continually improved. Most recently, my grandson and I saw "Phantom of the Opera" my wife and I saw it several years ago. Other memorable performances include "The Lion King" and "Mama Mia" among many others. The Superb Greenville... More

We went here recently to see a play - the venue is beautiful. I'm glad we were not in the middle of a row however because there is not an isle down the middle. But the views were great where we were and we've already got tickets for a couple more shows! :)

The Peace Center does a lot in terms of community involvement for children at the Little Theater and with the Orchestra. Actual Peace Center show are more for adults, as reflected by the prices. The Peace Center has been nicely remodeled (sound system still needs some fine tuning), but is definitely becoming more out-of-touch with the middle class, not only... More
