John & Jen
lyrics by Tom Greenwald
music by Andrew Lippa
book by Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald
Jen and her younger brother John are growing up in the ever-changing world of mid-century America. As the country becomes divided over the war in Vietnam, so does the family, and battle lines are drawn between the once-close siblings. When John is killed in Vietnam, Jen is left to reconcile her memory of their fractured relationship. This is a funny, charming, and compassionate musical about brothers, sisters, parents, and children, and the ways in which the tides of generations affect each other in unexpected ways.
