13 a must-see musical,
Oct 22, 2008
reviewer: from Fairfield County, CT USA
13 the musical is amazing. I've seen it at least 5 times. The music is sophisticate not any fluffy stuff like high school musical. It has depth. And these actors can sing! Sorry but again Zac Efron doesn't stand a chance. My mom and younger sister and I all enjoy the score and the comedy that Jason Robert Brown can portray in these songs. You will walk out of the theater wishing it was never going to end! It's a new JRB musical on Broadway get hyped! I've seen more Broadway shows that you can imagine and this one tops them all!

13 the musical = best to hit Broadway in a while!!,

reviewer: from Boston, MA
13,13,13!! This tween Broadway sensation is sweeping the nation!!!


13 is about Evan Goldberg, who moves from NYC to Indiana when he's almost thirteen. Once in Indiana, he has to deal with making new friends and the culture shock, along with all the other things that teenagers go through like dating and puberty. This show is written by Jason Robert Brown, so it is fantastically written, and the songs are AMAZING! There are catchy and upbeat, and the lyrics and comical and funny and will have you laughing out loud.Most importantly, the talent in the cast is what makes the show. 13 contains the first Broadway cast EVER! of only teens. (apprx 13-18 year olds. ) Also, the band consists of kids at these ages, also. For more info, go to , or if I have already sold ya on the show, go straight to to sign up for the ultimate fan club, and meet other 13 fans!

13 The Musical,
Oct 26, 2008
reviewer: from Anytown, AT 55555
“No you’re not ready, not it’s not time yet, no it’s not right now, wait until you’re older.” Phrases I’m sure you heard time and time again when you were younger. Not this time. 13 The Musical, an amazing new show has broken this mold and thanks to them we’ve been able to welcome Broadway’s first all teen cast and band!


The story starts in New York City with Evan Goldman as he is preparing for his Bar Mitzvah. Unfortunately, his parents go through a bitter divorce and he is forced to move to the small town of Appleton, Indiana, a.k.a. the lamest place in the world. There, he meets his neighbor Patrice and they become friends. Once school starts Evan finds the need to do everything in his power to have the best Bar Mitzvah ever. So he leaves Patrice, the quirky, offbeat, and even geeky girl, for the cool crowd.


It's a great musical that is definately worth seeing!Brittany

13 - you're breakin our hearts!!! Don't leave Broadway - catch a second breathe. We loved the show so much we are coming back with 50 more students from our middle school in December to see it again. Everyone has got to spread the word!
