Musical John & Jen takes an intelligent and witty look at the complexities of brother-sister and parent-child relationships. Set against the background of a changing America from the 1950s to the 1990s, John & Jen is the story of Jen and her relationships with the two Johns of her life: her younger brother, and her son. The actors take their characters from childhood through adolescence and beyond. Along the way they explore complicated family connections and how to heal after a tragic loss. John & Jen was the debut musical of composer and lyricist Andrew Lippa, who went on to write music and lyrics for The Wild Party and The Addams Family and contributed three new songs to the Broadway version of You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

I was a little apprehensive when I first heard that my favorite court drama, Twelve Angry Men, was being performed in an oriental rug store. However, my interest had already been piqued. The way that the show was set up was fairly unique. The long table used for jury deliberation was set up in the center of the room, with the juror's chairs surrounding it. The audience seating was arranged in three tiered rows on either side of the jury table, allowing a very intimate arrangement with every seat only a few feet from the action.
The all-star cast in the movie included, Henry Fonda, Lee J Cobb, Jack Klugman, Ed Begley, John Feidler, E G Marshall, Jack Warden, and Martin Balsam. The exemplary performances by these actors had me initially lower my expectations regarding the performances that I could expect from the local troupe.
Not only was I pleasantly surprised to see the incredible talent as the story unfolded before my eyes, the increasing intensity of the actors was impressive. There was also an added dimension of the play. Since I knew the storyline, I could look around the room and observe any of the characters react to the action, not only the ones that the film's director chose to show.
In conclusion, this intimate setting and talented ensemble made for a great evening of entertainment.
