John joins the cast of Run Bambi Run for its world premiere at Milwaukee Rep! Music and lyrics by Gordon Gano of Violent Femmes. Book by Eric Simonson. The truth is indeed stranger than fiction in this new musical ripped from the headlines! An outrageous ‘true crime’ saga that took the nation by storm, Lawrencia “Bambi” Bembenek's fall from Milwaukee Police Department cop to Playboy Bunny lands her in the slammer, convicted of a murder that she didn’t commit. Or did she? For more info about the show, click here. Runs Sept 22 - Oct 22.
John lent his particular brand of crazy to the dark comedy indie feature film, Stranger Than Paradise, currently in production. It tells the story of two unlikely rebels of a doomsday cult as they try to track down its leader after the Rapture doesn't happen. (He's not one of them - he plays a nutty believer.)
