My favorite memory of Peter was when he was one of the sailors in"The Tempest" and turned to the motley crew before the banquet table that Ariel had created and said, "Nosh ein bissen". (Hope I have spelled that right.) As I recall the others who were facing the audience had a hard time not laughing out loud.
NOTE from me: That reminds me... Two of the nicest men I ever had the good fortune to work with had a great deal in common... Peter and Sammy Davis Jr.
Both with only one eye... both phenomenally talented... and both Jewish...
