Busted over the weekend for a Saturday showing of Carole Kings 'Beautiful'. Great performance! The actors were fantastic. Seats were very comfortable and spacious for my 6'7" husband and our balcony seats were in a great spot. Great location in Greenville with plenty to see and do. We stayed within walking distance and tried several restaurants, too. Only complaint was... More

We saw Beautiful last night and the play and venue were "Simply Beautiful"! The Peace enter is a great venue and is always first class. We see 5 - 10 performances there every year and they never disappoint. Every seat in the house is great and there are plenty of nearby restaurants if you want dinner before the performance. Best...

We Greenvillians are proud of the Peace Center and how it promotes the arts. It is set in a beautiful spot in downtown Greenville, surrounded by fabulous restaurants and along the riverfront.

Great venue, clean and seats are comfortable and you don't feel like you're sitting in your neighbor seats space. The ushers are plentiful and the only line is when you leave. Acoustics are good but some seats are far enough from the stage that binoculars would be helpful. Good seats go fast so get your tickets early.

Great venue to see a show Lots of volunteers that are friendly and helpful Plenty of restrooms and easy entrance and exit. No parking, so you must pay at a local lot or find a free spot nearby. Close to restaurants.

We were fortunate to attend a performance of "The Book of Morman" on its recent return engagement to Greenville. Our seats were outstanding (Row D, 23/24, dead center) that I was able to purchase from my boss at regular cost. The fact that we were dead center was nice in that at intermission we had nobody walking over us to... More

My first time visit to Greenville and I saw an excellent touring company production of a Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder. As a stage performer myself, I love to look out at filled seats, not empty ones. In my case, I had bought a seat, then decided to move closer during intermission to one of several vacant seats. The... More

We purchased tickets for Book of Mormon and were treated to a great play with true Broadway performances. The actors were great. The theater doesn't have a bad seat and the subscription theater offerings were all first rate this year. We are not subscribers and live 4 hours to the east of Greenville, but we were able to procure excellent... More
