LRP Presents “John & Jen” at Florence Event Center

Music Theater International calls “John & Jen” …“A truly original musical that honors brothers and sisters, as well as 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… With a cast of only two people, John & Jen is a tour-de-force for two actors, taking them from childhood, through adolescence, and beyond. A chamber musical, beautifully scored for piano and cello, John & Jen is a musical about connections, commitments and the healing of the heart.

Performance dates are March 17th, 18th, 19th, 20th and 24th, 25th, 26th, and 27th and will be held at the Florence Events Center.
