Two Acts, Book Musical, Pop / Rock, Rated PG
Original Broadway Version

With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, (PARADE, THE LAST FIVE YEARS, BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY) 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.

Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!

Comprised of a precocious cast, no character in 13 is older than the show's title making it wonderful for theatre companies that feature young artists. In the Broadway production even the band was made up of teens which is a fantastic way to include kids whose talents may not lie in the acting.
