“JOHN & JEN”
A Musical by Andrew Lippa (with Book by Tom Greenwald)
Directed by Daniel Hunsicker - Musical Direction by Dave Michaels
Show Dates: July 22 – July 31, 2022
A truly original musical that takes a look at the complexities of relationships between brothers and sisters and parents and children, set against the background of a changing America between 1950 and 1990, john & jen is a gem of a show brimming with intelligence, wit and beautiful melodies.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 Jen and John (both of them) from childhood, through adolescence and beyond. A chamber musical, beautifully scored for piano, cello and percussion, john & jen is a musical about connections, commitments and the healing of the human heart.

The Western Reserve Playhouse is thrilled to have Braelin Andrzejewski (Forbidden Broadway & Assassins) and Robert Kowalewski (Forbidden Broadway) as the roles John and Jen. We promise you an evening of emotion, laughter, and pure talent.
