John & Jen
Book and Lyrics by Tom Greenwald, Music and Lyrics by Andrew Lippa
Directed by TBA
A heartwarming look at a woman named Jen and the two Johns of her life: Her younger brother and son. Spanning four decades, we see Jen and her brother grow from young ages into adults with very different views. After John is tragically killed in Vietnam, Jen gives birth to a son, who she also names John, and goes to touching and often humorous lengths to resurrect his memory. Infused with jazzy up tempos, soaring ballads and memorable characters, John and Jen truly has something for everyone.
