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.
