John & Jen is not a musical I had a lot of (re: any) familiarity with. It's a 1996 Off-Broadway musical from the mind of Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald that never quite reached the same notoriety as some of their other works. But, in the words of director Darryl Lindenbach, this show is a labor of love. 23 years after directing the Canadian Premiere of this two-hander musical, Lindenbach is back to bring these siblings to the modern Calgary stage.

Today Keen Artistic Director Jonathan Silverstein announced his plans for the upcoming season: 'I am thrilled to announce Keen Company's 19th season, two uplifting stories about the big impact of small actions. This fall Keen will produce our fourth intimate musical, the first NY revival of Adam Gwon's Ordinary Days. I've been a fan of Adam's work for years and am so excited to work with him to bring this beloved musical to life in a brand new production with new orchestrations. Ordinary Days beautifully depicts the search for connection and how one person's actions can influence complete strangers. In the spring we will present the New York premiere of Surely Goodness and Mercy, a truly Keen story about an exceptional boy living a troubled life in Newark, NJ who does a good deed for an often unnoticed person. Chisa is a rare writer who speaks to our complicated times today with a full heart and a singular voice. I am thrilled to welcome her into the Keen family,' said Silverstein.

Over the last two decades, our country has grown more and more divided. The effects have been taken out on families, politics, social class, and the culture at large. No matter your affiliation, we all have the topics we want to avoid over Thanksgiving dinner. This season at The Studio Theatre we have chosen four stories that search for unity in a nation fighting for common ground. The titles we chose for this upcoming season convey important relationships hurt and broken by divisive opinions of loved ones. Through listening, can we reach across the divide? Only then can we truly begin to manifest the American Dream. In the words of George H. W. Bush, 'In crucial things, unity. In important things, diversity. In all things, generosity.' Presenting season four at The Studio Theatre: We the people reach across the divide. -Whitney Morse, Artistic Director
