The Tragedy of
Clownpheus & EuridIce-Cream
Devised by Nathan Shu and Erik Christopher Peterson, TTOC&E is a 'silly clown show turned greek tragedy'. Though it has received some invitation-only performances, the public run scheduled for April 2022 was postponed due to Covid-19.
For those following this project: stay tuned, more is to come.
Romeo & Juliet
In February of '22, Erik wrapped up a
successful run of R&J with Saint Louis Shakespeare
at the Reim Theatre in Kirkwood, MO.
"An exuberant Peterson, boyishly handsome like the 1996 Leonardo di Caprio in Baz Luhrman’s bold movie interpretation, bounds on stage and quickly engages as the impulsive, idealistic, smart, and sensitive Romeo."
-Lynn Venhaus, PopLifeSTL.com
"Their youthfulness is right for the characters, especially the impetuous ones, and their Webster training is evident in their fully realized, beautifully spoken performances."
-Gerry Kowarsky, STL HEC
As well as acting, Erik is also a director and aspiring text coach.
In November of '21, he directed the world premiere of Dan Caffrey's short play Duckass at Webster to rave reviews.
In April of '22, Erik opened a devised piece he conceived and directed: The Most Lamentable Tragedy of the Peanut Butter King.
