"It's a particularthrill to see Griffin giving poignant nuances to the Priest, a role that inlesser hands could simply be BARE's bad guy. And Griffin's tear inducingperformance of 'Cross' makes  it a BARE 2013 standout."
-Stage Scene LA 

"Griffin gives us a heart-wrenching performance."
-Pop Culture Beast

"A superb production.  Making the strongest impressions in the 15-member cast are Lewis as 'Peter' and Griffin as the staunch Priest."
-Frontiers Magazine

After receiving Ovation Award and Robby Award Nominations (Best Lead Actor In A Musical) for originating the role of torn teenager "Jason" in the world premiere of BARE at the Hudson Theatre - and reviving the role in the first Off-Broadway workshop at The New York Theatre Workshop - John was thrilled to return to the show, this time as the Priest that runs St. Cecilia's Boarding School where the action takes place.

This Hayworth Theatre production was the first time BARE had been back to Los Angeles since its world premiere.
