A native New Yorker (Bronx, actually), Peter has spent most of his life entertaining the masses in one form or another. Being the 5th child out of 6 required a certain ability to stand apart and be noticed. That ability has served him well in a career that is now spanning into it’s third decade.
At an early age, it was the stage that drew Peter’s interest. During his high school years he studied dance in NYC at STEPS on BROADWAY and BROADWAY DANCE CENTER. His first paying job took him on the road for the first time in his young life and inspired a passion for travel and discovery. His twenties were spent touring with various productions and dance luminaries such as TOMMY TUNE, ANNE REINKING, & DONNA McKECHINE.
With 38 states under his belt and 4 continents, Peter turned his sights on NYC. He danced at the RADIO CITY MUSIC HALL in the CHRISTMAS SPECTACULAR, for SUSUAN STROMAN in annual holiday extravaganza A CHRISTMAS CAROL at the MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.
During this time Peter also had the good fortune to land the first of two long runs on Broadway as an original cast member of CONTACT at THE LINCOLN CENTER THEATER. Peter spent 3 glorious years performing in SUSAN STROMAN and JOHN WEIDMAN’S TONY AWARD winning musical, culminating with the final performance broadcast on LIVE FROM LINCOLN CENTER.
Peter originated the role of BOB CREWE in the TONY AWARD winning musical JERSEY BOYS on Broadway, having originated the role during its world premiere at the LA JOLLA PLAYHOUSE. He was also dance supervisor for the Broadway company of JERSY BOYS for 5 years. He owned the role for the entire run of the show, racking up over 4350 performances.
Not one to sit still, Peter has also began work on adapting the play MARATHON 33 by JUNE HAVOC. Peter directed and choreographed the world premiere of the piece, now entitled M33, in January of 2012 at the PITTSBURGH PLAYHOUSE.
Peter has lent his directing and choreography talents to many non profit organizations, putting together benefits for THE ACTORS FUND OF AMERICA & BROADWAY CARES/EQUITY FIGHTS AIDS. He also has been a choreographer & movement consultant for many television commercials for products like ALIZE and GLADE.
