In 1998, Peter
enjoyed great success and got rave reviews as the star of Arthur Miller's play, "Mr.
Peters' Connections" - Produced in May 1998 in New York and
starring Peter Falk, Mr. Peters' Connections takes place, in Miller's own words, in
"that suspended state of consciousness when the mind is freed to roam from real
memories to conjectures, from trivialities to tragic insights, from terror of death to
glorying in one's being alive." Within the confines of his mind, Mr. Peters interacts
with the living members of his family and his long-deceased brother and lover, as well as
the imaginary Adele, a black bag lady, who is a figment of Peters' imagination and one of
Miller's most original characters. "A work of rare honesty and dignity" (Fintan
O'Toole, New York Daily News), Mr. Peters' Connections uncoils with
ferocious, life-affirming intensity.
