How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? Walking uptown from Pearl Studios, I got a phone call less than a half hour after my callback for Chicago. From the phone I heard, “Peter, how would you like to make your Broadway debut in Chicago?" I jumped all around 8th Avenue like a crazy man!
What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? Broadway Bares. The energy and proceedings of the show are unique, and it’s a seldom-found opportunity to collaborate with my fellow Broadway performers.
What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? The gypsies themselves. Everyone’s story is so different, I’m always astounded at the differing journeys that bring someone to performing on Broadway.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Ido Portal, a movement artist and researcher. To have his bodily facility and control would be truly remarkable.
If I could have coffee with any living person, it would be… Larry Page, co-founder of Google. What is important to the man with the keys to the Internet’s wealth of knowledge?
If I could trade places with anybody for a day, I would choose… President Barack Obama. Just for a day, to hear the perspectives of the people he surrounds himself with every day.
To be successful in this business, it takes… patience, hard work, an open heart and kindness. At least those I consider successful!
Tell us a secret. I’m good at keeping other’s secrets, but I don’t have any of my own. I’m an open book!
