Welcome! I’m John Austin from Austin, Texas. I'm an award-winning, classically trained actor. I currently work in theatre and am an Equity Membership Candidate (EMC). I'm interested in film and TV work too. Most of all, I believe in the power of stories.
Stories inspire us. Stories connect us. Stories transform us. This belief is the driving force of my life. It drives me to act and to write. It drives me to support these endeavors with arts education and administration work. It also literally drives me throughout the United States: Boston, where I earned my BFA in Acting from Boston University’s School of Theatre; 22 states, in which I performed while on tour with National Players; even London, where I trained at LAMDA. I currently live and work in Washington, DC as an actor. I'm willing to adventure elsewhere to do this work.
In the 19/20 Season, I have written a new full-length play, Liberty Blue. I will perform in the world premiere of Right to Be Forgotten (Arena Stage, DC). I will also perform in the world premiere of Easy Women Smoking Loose Cigarettes (Signature Theatre, VA). In time, service through storytelling will drive me as an actor and writer across multiple forms of media. Want to be part of the journey? Browse the website to find out more.
