Feel Like A Show?

Peace Center at Night, Greenville, South Carol...
After living in Chicago for over 10 years the one thing I really missed down here in SC was Broadway shows and even those small little out of the way theater shows.  Well I can tell you that living here in the Upstate does not mean you have to miss out on anything.  There are plenty of places to go for a good Broadway style performance and small home grown theaters.  Here is a partial list of a few in this area.
