“A gem!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

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.

The Peace Center is a beautiful venue with a great atmosphere. All seats have a perfect view of the stage also.

“Do not overlook!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014 via mobile

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 Symphony is a must as well. Don't go to Greenville without checking out the Peace Center.

“Beautiful Venue Downtown Greenville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

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! :)

“Elite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

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 in terms of ticket prices but overall atmosphere...way overpriced food/drinks along with a not spoken but clear dress code. They are definitely starting to cater more to those who live downtown as they do not refund tickets, even during a state of emergency, if those who live downtown can get to the event.
