About the Narrator: Jon Reynolds

Head and shoulders shot of Jon Reynolds in dark t-shirtHello there, I’m Jon Reynolds. I’m new to the Library of Congress's NLS Media Lab, having come on board in 2022. I was born in Washington, DC, but I spent most of my childhood just across the Potomac in Alexandria, VA. I was the child of a librarian and an archivist, and I grew up with a love of books and history.

I started acting while attending McDaniel College in Westminster, MD, and never stopped. I’ve been a theatre practitioner in the DC area for 22 years. I’ve worked variously as an actor, a deviser/playwright, a scenic designer, and a teacher. While away from the stage for much of these past two years, I’ve stayed busy performing in a variety of audio projects. You can hear me as the narrator in Edgar Allen Poe’s The Tell Tale Heart, as Sherlock Holmes in The Adventure of the Dancing Men and The Norwood Builder and as several characters in the Loveday Brooke audio detective series, all produced by the DC theatre troupe We Happy Few (WHF). I also recently voiced characters in the Feminist Fairytales podcast episode Rumpelstiltskin: A Retelling.

In the last few years on the DC area stages, I’ve performed in Ada and the Engine (Avant Bard Theatre), Visions of Love (Pointless Theatre Co.), Mnemonic (Theater Alliance) and Pericles and Dracula (We Happy Few). Going a little further back, some of my earlier stage credits include Beertown, A Killing Game and Toast (dog & pony dc); The Winter's Tale, As You Like It and The Second Shepherds' Play (Folger Theatre); Scenes from the Big Picture (Solas Nua) and Romeo & Juliet (The Shakespeare Theatre Company).
