Peter Marks is a staff writer for the Washington Post and has been that grand paper’s chief theater critic since 2002. Prior to that, he was a reporter and theater critic for 10 years for The New York Times.

Peter’s positions at the Times included a stint as a national correspondent, covering the 2000 Presidential campaign. Before that, he did stints at the Newark Star-Ledger and other New Jersey newspapers.

Peter was a reporter and feature writer for Newsday, where, in 1992, he was on a team of reporters that won the Pulitzer Prize for local reporting, for coverage of a New York subway crash.

He is co-author with the late AIG CEO Bob Benmosche of the 2016 memoir, “Good for the Money: My Fight to Pay Back America,” which is the story of Benmosche’s life, culminating in his successful revitalization of the insurance giant that was hobbled by the 2008 financial crisis.
