John & Jen stars Jon Jimenez and Mikaela Duffy as the title characters in the off-Broadway musical by Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald. The first act chronicles the relationship of two siblings; an introduction of sorts.

The show opens to an obviously strained relationship between the brother and sister, then takes you back to the beginning to walk you through the highs and lows of their collective upbringing. The two form a tight bond until Jen must break her promise to always protect John from their abusive father. It is a funny, heartwarming and emotional look at how two people handle the joys and heartbreaks of family.

From composer Andrew Lippa, best known for music and lyrics of Broadway musicals such as “The Addams Family,” “Big Fish” and “The Wild Party,” comes a clever and playful musical about a brother and sister, at different ages and stages in their lives. They play, tease each other, and at times argue; while also engaging concepts of togetherness, social freedom, and the true meaning of family.
