John Judd

John Judd is honored, grateful, and genuinely thrilled to join the ensemble at A Red Orchid Theatre in 2023. The invitation to share an artistic home with so many of his favorite artists is both an affirmation and a challenge. He can’t wait to work again with old friends, and establish new bonds with those with whom he has yet to collaborate.

He has appeared with A Red Orchid Theatre in The Malignant Ampersands (2022), Gagarin Way (2005), and in the remount of Simpatico at McCarter Theatre in 2017.
John began his on stage life as part of an improv troupe under the tutelage of Del Close in 1985. Over the last thirty-five years in Chicago, he has been seen on virtually all this city’s stages where singing is not required. He has also appeared Off-Broadway in NYC, at regional venues across the US, and internationally.
