John Busser (Father, Mayor) is no stranger to the Flanagan family. No stranger than any of the other cast members at any rate. He has appeared on stages all over the Cleveland area over the last ten years, sometimes on purpose. Favorite roles have included George in Out of Order, Milo in Sleuth, Freddy in Noises Off, The Old Man in A Christmas Story, and Oscar in The Odd Couple. Strangely enough, ALL these people dress better than John does in real life, (including Oscar).
