Mailer founded Back House Productions in New York City with three other Wesleyan grads in October 2000. The following year, Back House became the resident theater company of The Drama Bookshop’s Arthur Seelan Theater, and developed, among many plays, the 2008 Tony winner for Best Musical, In The Heights.
In 2001, John’s first play, Hello Herman, had its New York Premiere at the Grove Street Playhouse and nine years later, its West Coast Premiere at the Edgemar Center for the Arts in Los Angeles with John in the lead role. The result was Dramatists Play Services publishing the play in the Spring of 2010. John’s second play, Crazy Eyes, premiered in Athens, Greece in 2005.
Mailer portrays the character Robby Mancins, an Options trader and the best friend of Shia Labeouf’s character Jake Moore, in Oliver Stone’s Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps. He has appeared on Hannity and Combs, Air America, Democracy Now, WNYC, CSPAN’s Book TV, and thebigthink.com. He has freelanced for Playboy, New York Magazine, Provincetown Arts, Lid, Stop Smiling, Corriera De La Sera, The Norman Mailer Review, ESPN Books and The American Conservative.
