London’s John and Jen Now Available to Pre-order on DVD

The filmed production of Andrew Lippa and Tom Greenwald's John & Jen, captured live in London, will be released on DVD from Liberator films - and is now available to pre-order.

Earlier this week it was announced that Rachel Tucker and Lewis Cornay will reprise their roles next month to celebrate the musical's 30th anniversary at New York's 54 Below. The concert will take place February 9, 2023 and will feature the revised show captured live on film.

If you can't get to New York, here's how to catch John and Jen now, through streaming and on DVD:



John & Jen offers an intimate look at the complexities of familial relationships in a changing America. Set in both 1985 and 2005, the musical follows brother and sister John & Jen who were born seven years apart but are completely inseparable. 

Liberator Films, a production house from producer Austin Shaw will release John & Jen on DVD March 14th, 2023. While most other Liberator films were released on Blu-Ray, John & Jen is expected to be available exclusively on DVD.

The DVD version is now available to pre-order for a dicounted price of $11.95 ahead of its March release. The DVD runs 102 minutes and will play all regions.

Other releases from the Liberator include Kinky Boots the Musical42nd streetThe Wind in the WillowsAn American in Paris, and West End musical From Here to Eternity. Coming this March is the DVD and Blu-Ray released of Sutton Foster in the London revival of Anything Goes.



The live recording of John & Jen captures the heavily revised London revival that will now have its US premiere at 54 below. Filmed in the summer of 2021 at the Southwark Playhouse in London, the production stars Olivier Award-nominee Rachel Tucker (Come From Away, Wicked) and Lewis Cornay (The Book of Mormon).

John & Jen is directed by Austin Shaw (42nd Street: The MusicalAnything GoesAn American in Paris) with orchestrations by Jason Robert Brown (13, The Last 5 Years) and Andrew Lippa.

The filmed musical starts off in 1985 with John and Jen, brother and sister, who were born seven years apart and grow up together totally inseparable. Jen makes a "forever pact" with her little brother to always protect him against anything and anyone, including their own dad.

The production fast forwards to 2005, where Jen lives alone in Canada with her baby boy whom she has named John, a living memorial to the brother she failed to protect. The beautiful and haunting score emotionally captures the zeitgeist of contemporary America.

Tickets for the upcoming 54 below concert are now available to purchase.
