PETER EVANGELISTA is a born and bred New Yorker who fell in love with movies as a child and drove everyone in his house crazy with his recreations of the films he had experienced.
After making the life affirming decision to pursue a career as an actor, he committed to his training and hasn't looked back. After studying under Meisner protege James Price at The Acting Studio - New York, Peter has been able to apply his craft to theater, film and television.
Peter is also an Acting Instructor and active member of Chelsea Repertory Company, which serves as the resident theater company for The Acting Studio- New York, where he teaches. He continues to explore all aspects of creativity through his teachings and involvement with Chelsea Rep.
