“Welcome to the world; it’s such a funny place. The people who you love the most are also the ones who make you cry. I’m not sure why.”
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", "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.
