John & Jen


Lyrics by  Tom Greenwald
Music by  Andrew Lippa
Book by  Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald


Two Acts, Book Musical, Rated PG
Original Off-Broadway Version

A truly original musical that takes a look at the complexities of relationships between brothers and sisters and parents and children, set against the background of a changing America between 1950 and 1990, JOHN & JEN is a gem of a show brimming with intelligence, wit and beautiful melodies.

This is the story of Jen and her relationships with the two Johns of her life: her younger brother, who was killed in Vietnam, and his namesake, her son who is trying to find his way in a confusing world.

With a cast of only two people, JOHN & JEN is a tour-de-force for two actors who take them from childhood, through adolescence and beyond. A chamber musical, beautifully scored for piano, cello and percussion, JOHN & JEN is a musical about connections, commitments and the healing of the human heart.
