Among Peter’s additional directing works are the original musical Bright and Brave (Dixon Place), an actor-musician reimagining of Spring Awakening (The Space at Irondale), and a collegiate-touring adaptation of Seussical (Hofstra University). Select assisting credits include NYMF Benefit Concert: Honoring Steven Schwartz at Signature Theatre, The Big Bang Theory Musical Parody off-Broadway, and Whitney White's Three Sisters at Joe's Pub.

Peter works seasonally in production management for The Tony Awards, The Oscars, Sleep No More, and the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and was previously the Assistant to the Artistic Director at Playwrights Horizons. He is a freelance film journalist for multiple online publications and covers the New York Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival.
