13 is turning 10

It's hard to believe that nearly an entire decade has flown by since 13 bowed on Broadway. This innovative musical, with a pop-rock score by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown and a hilariously authentic book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn, broke the mold on Broadway when it opened at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on October 5, 2008. In an inspired creative decision, 13 was the first Broadway musical to have a cast and band composed entirely of teenagers (including a pre-superstar Ariana Grande). 

13 is written specifically for those burgeoning towards teenage life, and Elish and Horn's sharp and witty book dives into universally understood experiences. The frustration and delights of these tumultous pre-teen times take center stage - and audiences of all ages will undoubtedly relate. 

Since its general release to the amatuer market, 13 has been performed by almost 1,100 organizations in the US alone. To celebrate this history-making musical's 10th Anniversary, we invite to read Dan Elish and Robert Horn's script FOR FREE and listen along to the score by Jason Robert Brown.
