John & Jen

Music by Andrew Lippa

Lyrics by Tom Greenwald

Book by Tom Greenwald and Andrew Lippa

Set against the background of a changing America between 1950 and 1990, this truly original musical takes a look at the complexities of relationships between brothers and sisters and parents and children. 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 own 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.

Following the October 7 matinee, you're invited to connect with the artistic staff and fellow theatre-goers by participating in our first ever post-show discussion. Featuring a live video chat Q&A with Tony-nominated composer Andrew Lippa. Don't miss this exciting opportunity to talk with professional theatre artists about their work!
