The Off-Broadway revival of Andrew Lippa's musical John & Jen closed April 4 and two days later headed into the recording studio to make a new cast album of the 1995 musical.
Kate Baldwin and Conor Ryan comprise the entire cast of this musical about a brother and sister who grow up close to one another in an abusive household. They grow apart, John goes away to war and doesn't come back, and Jen focuses all her protectiveness on her son, also named John.
