The Johnny

What's the character breakdown?

Well, it's a musical so it's a little harder to gauge, but you can do it with 8 men and 7 women (which gives you the 4 male leads and 3 female leads, and an 8 person chorus).

How long is it?

It's a full-length musical, 105 pages long.  It plays at just over 2 hours with an intermission.

A musical?  Did you write it all yourself?

Nope, I just wrote the book and lyrics.  The very talented David F.M. Vaughn wrote the music.

Has it been produced?  

Yes, one productions as part of the 2008 NY International Fringe Festival in New York City.

What's it about?  

The Johnny is the musical that answers the question:  What happened to the bullying blonde jock in all those beloved '80s movies AFTER he lost to the scrappy young underdog?  Drawing on inspirations such as The Karate Kid and Back to School, The Johnny tells a completely new story that begins just as those nerd-defeats-bully stories are ending.

Can I read a sample?  

Of course you can!  You can read it right here.

Any pictures of past productions?  

Yep.  Right down below.

Has it been published?

Not yet, but I'll always entertain offers.
