About this show

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. Featuring a musical score that not only echoes the music of the 1980's, but also finds a place for tap and Irish-themed numbers, The Johnny is a lively adventure full of laughs and heart, that just might make you root against the underdog.
