John Reardon (8 April 1930 – 16 April 1988) was an American baritone and actor who was noted for his performances on television, including many appearances on the PBS children's television show Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood. Reardon was a member of the New York Metropolitan Opera from 1965 until 1977, appearing in such operas as Carmen and Jenufa. In 1967, Reardon created the role of Orin Mannon (the equivalent of Orestes in Aeschylus' Oresteia) in the world premiere of Marvin David Levy's Mourning Becomes Electra. He co-starred with Phil Silvers on Broadway in the Jule Styne musical Do Re Mi introducing the standard song "Make Someone Happy". He also appeared on Broadway in New Faces of 1956 and Gian Carlo Menotti's The Saint of Bleecker Street. He performed the role of Schaunard in the famous 1956 recording of La Boheme conducted by Sir Thomas Beecham. In 1960 he created a main role of Mr. McC in a nine-minute opera Introductions and Good-Byes by Lukas Foss, premiered on May 5, 1960 in New York City with New York Philharmonic conducted by Leonard Bernstein. In 1969 he created the role of Dr. Stone in the premiere of Menotti's Help, Help, the Globolinks! at the Santa Fe Opera. Reardon was chosen by Igor Stravinsky to sing the role of Nick Shadow on Stravinsky's second recording of his opera The Rake's Progress.
