SUMMARY

Six-year-old Jen Tracy welcomes her newborn brother John into the world, with a warning about the pain the ones you love can cause you… Set against the backdrop of a changing America between 1950 and 1990, John & Jen follows the story of Jen and her relationships with the two Johns in her life: her brother, and his namesake, her son. A chamber musical beautifully scored by Tony nominee Andrew Lippa, composer of The Addams Family and The Wild Party, John & Jen is Lippa’s overlooked masterpiece. Chock-full of wit, sparkle and touching ballads, at its heart John & Jen is a moving portrayal of family: of brother and sister, and of mother and son.
