I am a versatile actor/musician with a passion for stage performance. Playing eccentric comedic characters is where I get my greatest kicks. And I enjoy bringing pathos and revealing character vulnerabilities in both comedic and serious roles.
I recently portrayed the Marquess of Queensbury in the touring musical drama Vengeance - The Demise of Oscar Wilde, and will soon be appearing as Roberto in Ariel Dorfman's Death and the Maiden.

"John Newcombe brings on a Broadway-level performance, particularly in his last moments on stage. His bitterness and stiff formality delightfully contrast Clark’s Wilde, and in the end when he reminisces his father and sons, he rises to the great heights of tragic monologues."
"John Newcombe's portrayal of Queensbury is phenomenal and deserves to be seen on a bigger stage by a larger audience." - Daniel White, Albie Media
"John Newcombe was excellent as the single-minded, bigoted Marquess of Queensberry, who was portrayed as the villain of the story. He made the character extremely unlikeable, although showed the audience a slightly softer side towards the end of the show" - Scene1+
