2012 - 2013 SEASON : JOHN & JEN
MUSIC BY ANDREW LIPPA, LYRICS BY TOM GREENWALD
BOOK BY ANDREW LIPPA & TOM GREENWALD
OCTOBER 4-14 2012 AT CENTER STAGE THEATER
Set against the background of a changing America between 1950 and 1990, this truly original musical takes a look at the complexities of relationships between brothers and sisters and parents and children. 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.
