John participated in an in-house reading of Treva Silverman's play Scandal for MCC Theater.
Scandal is based on Silverman's original book for the musical of the same name. Originally slated for production years ago with music by Jimmy Webb and a cast including Swoozie Kurtz, Victor Garber, Rob Morrow, Treat Williams, David Rasche, and Fisher Stevens; Scandal was put on indefinite delay after the death of its director, the renowned Michael Bennett. Silverman, a former head writer for the Mary Tyler Moore show, has since updated and turned her book into a play.
The MCC reading was directed by Tony-winner (and original Scandal chorus-member) Jerry Mitchell. The cast included Tony-winner Katie Finneran, Original Scandal cast-member Rob Morrow, Tony-nominee David Pittu, Reg Rogers, Suzy Hunt, Max Von Essen and others.
