      Peter Gallagher

      Highest Rated: 100% Dreamchild (1985)

      Lowest Rated: 9% Someday This Pain Will Be Useful to You (2011)

      Birthday: Aug 19, 1955

      Birthplace: New York, New York, USA

      An accomplished stage and screen performer, with piercing blue eyes, thick black hair and strong, handsome features, dominated by full, pouty lips, Peter Gallagher received his training at Tufts University and apprenticed at the Boston Shakespeare Company. After appearing in the touring company of "Grease" and subsequently in the Broadway production, he went on to rack up numerous stage credits, including the American premiere of "Another Country" (1982), the short-lived musical "A Doll's Life" (also 1982) and a small role as Glenn Close's lover in Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing" (1984). He won praise and a Tony nomination as Edmund Tyrone (alongside Jack Lemmon and Kevin Spacey) in Jonathan Miller's controversial production of "Long Day's Journey Into Night," presented in 1987 on Broadway, London's West End and cable TV. In 1992, he triumphed as Sky Masterson in the successful revival of "Guys and Dolls." More recently, he made a memorable Joey opposite Patti LuPone in the four-day run of City Center Encores' "Pal Joey" in 1995. He and LuPone also reteamed for a one-night only benefit staging of "Annie Get Your Gun" (1998).
