13 A Musical

Closed January 4, 2009

Why See 13 A Musical?

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe.

These are the labels that can last a lifetime - and this new musical from Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown is already being labeled as the most original show of the season.

The cast is comprised entirely of teenagers, but the stories that come to life here are ageless, the emotions they explore timeless, the laughter and the memories they provide priceless.

After all, if you really want to know about someone, ask them which lunch table they sat at.

13. The new musical about fitting in – and standing out!

A grown-up story about growing up, featuring the only all-teenage cast ever to hit Broadway!

When his parents get divorced and he's forced to move from New York to a small town in Indiana, Evan Goldman just wants to make friends and survive the school year. Easier said than done.

The star quarterback is threatening to ruin his life and his only friend, Patrice, won't talk to him. The school freak sees an opportunity for blackmail and someone is spreading the nastiest rumors.

With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, "13" is a hilarious, high-energy musical for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it.
