Hello and welcome! Thanks for taking the time to stop by John’s website. Born in Houston,  John Devereaux discovered performance at the age of 14 after being persuaded to be in a play most of his close friends were in. From that production stemmed the passion of acting, singing, and entertainment. While in Texas, John was fortunate enough to work in a number of commercials including a national Wheel of Fortune spot. He was even able to get a taste of reality television at his alma mater’s show “Top Grad”. While in college, for his summer breaks, John had the opportunity to travel to Idaho to be at Coeur d’Alene Summer Theatre (named one of the top 10 places to see the lights off-broadway by USA Today) to perform in the first all black cast in the theater’s history in “Once On This Island” as Agwe. John was invited back to CST the following summer to perform the iconic role of Coalhouse Walker, Jr. in the musical epic, “Ragtime”. With the gathering momentum from “Ragtime” and receiving his BA in Theatre from Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, John relocated to Los Angeles where he now resides. He has been consistently working on stage in the L.A. theatre scene. A few of his LA stage credits include: RENT as Collins directed by Michael A. Shepperd, Little Shop of Horrors as the Voice of Audrey II starring Kristin Towers-Rowles, and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee as Mitch Mahoney performed at the historic El Portal Theatre. Other regional credits include: Dreamgirls as Curtis Taylor, Jr. at Village Theatre, RENT at Fiddlehead Theatre Co. His film credits include The Darq (2011), Be My Teacher (2011), and Zephyr Springs (2013) to name a few. Most recently John was seen on the 20th Anniversary National Tour of RENT.  When not working, John enjoys writing original spoken word pieces, working out, and thrifting. 

 “The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn, the bird waits in the egg, and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”-James Allen (Author of “As A Man Thinketh”)
