About me

I have been a performer for over 30 years. My work has encompassed stage, TV and film. Highlights have included seasons with the National Theatre and several West End musicals including 3 years in Les Miserables. My one man show 'Picasso is Coming ...Ce Soir' by Barry Fantoni,transfers to the St James Theatre, London in November. My first feature film 'Lurk' is due for release later this year.

Picasso is Coming ... Ce Soir 2013

"A fascinating, highly amusing and very moving night's theatre with an absolutely stand-out central performance from Peter Gerald." Alistair McGowan

"A genuine tour de force which must not go unrecognised, unremembered or unseen."
Remote Goat

The Thing About Men 2012

"The Thing About Men is a fast-paced and funny comedy Peter Gerald is outstanding in the lead - he's warm, witty and wry, creating a memorable character in Tom you really care for Gerald and Addison spark brilliantly off one another." Entertainment Focus

"Peter Gerald is a human dynamo as the successful advertising executive husband, his performance so full of energy that I feared a cardiac arrest at any moment! So is this another smash hit for the Landor?" Bargain Theatre

"Overheard at the Landor Theatre: "I paid 90 quid to see Sweeney Todd and came away depressed, I paid 18 pounds for this show at the Landor and came away happy. I know which I'd rather go to in future! Carrying the bulk of the show on his shoulders is the consummate musical comedy actor Peter Gerald as the husband. There is some really classy singing - most especially in the wondrous duet, "The Greatest Friend" between Tom and Sebastian. The three actors seem to be completely in tune with each other and the show is slick and fast moving. This is a true feel good production."

A Christmas Carol to 15/1/11

" ...It is a tremendous collective effort, but accolades galore to Peter Gerald as Scrooge - a highly watchable, versatile actor who has been doing amazing work this past year...
A night of guaranteed enjoyment for all the family."
Camden New Journal/ West End Extra


"There is not a single weak link amongst the cast of 21 actors, singers and musicians, who hold the entire piece together with their exuberance, credibility and considerable performance skills - and they are led from the front by a tour de force performance by Peter Gerald as Scrooge.It is theatre at its simplest. And it is simply brilliant."
West End/Broadway.com

"Adding to the wonderful ideas born of (Ray) Shell's imagination is the performance of Peter Gerald who has managed to turn this stereotypical misanthrope into a real human being. He plays the role with absolute truth and humour and his reactions to the extraordinary situation he is in are completely believable and very funny... This is bound to be the hit of the Christmas season."
Ham & High

"Returning to a production first presented two years ago, Giant Olive proves there will always be a keen audience for a winning formula.This time Ebenezer is played by West End regular Peter Gerald, who portrays his Scrooge as more of a reasonable Coalition government member protecting his interests than the outright pantomime villain. His references to self-preservation and providing for the poor merely by paying his taxes are particularly resonant for today's audience, and the messages spelled out to Scrooge about the importance of humanity and compassion couldn't be more appropriate."
The Stage



The Duchess of Padua

Pentameters Theatre to 15/5/10

"Peter Gerald's hilarious turn as the Duke of Padua,a pantomime villain who glories in being hated by the ordinary folk and comes over all Marie Antoinette when the people complain that they have to drink stagnant water, exclaiming, 'They should drink wine!' It's just a pity he gets killed off before the interval."
Time Out

"There are some exceptional performances. Peter Gerald plays the wicked Duke with sophistication and supercilious charm in a silky smooth interpretation which matches well with his "let them eat cake" philosophy."
Ham & High

"The Duke, in the expert hands of Peter Gerald is a Napoleonic character, charming when things are going his way, but a ruthless bully who treats his Duchess with the kind of disdain that he also dishes out to the hoi polloi whose cause she embraces. He is a charming villain who would turn on you like a flash with no reason."

The Tulip Wars

Giant Olive @ Lion & Unicorn Theatre to 28/3/10

"Peter Gerald's Carolus Hoofdorn and Cornelia Vanderpol (Tamzin Paskins), his Haarlem rival, are by far the strongest and most interesting performances in this play."
British Theatre Guide

"Peter Gerald is excellent as both Hoofdorn and the bumbling plod Sergeant Ellsworth."
Remote Goat

"The double playing of Tamzin Paskins as the graduate student Sheila Crouch and Cornelia Vanderpol, and the excellent Peter Gerald as Carolus Hoofdorn and Sergeant Ellsworth gives both the opportunity for some great comedy"
Remote Goat

"A production of enormous vim by actor turned director Ray Shell who elicits prize-winning performances from an excellent ensemble"
The Stage



Dreamboats and Petticoats 16/9/09

"Peter Gerald has moments of brilliance as the embarrassing dad."
Coventry Telegraph


Reviews of Kitty & Damnation

Giant Olive @ Lion & Unicorn Theatre to 12/9/09

"Crilly's colourful poetic prose the quality of Rafe Beckley's fast-paced production and first-rate cast, with Peter Gerald, as the dreadfuls' author an oily delight and Amy Molloy simply terrific."
The Stage


"Peter Gerald gives a stand-out performance as broadside profiteer Ranseck, dapper, vulgar, gimlet-eyed and seductively plausible in his villainy"
London Theatre Blog


"Peter Gerald is delightfully evil as the Dickensian Ranseck - a part he doubles with a political maniac in the first scene."
Ham & High
