Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown brings together 13 cast members who are 13 years of age to perform in the world premiere of 13, a new musical.
The play takes place in a middle school in Indiana with a group of students who, like million of kids across America, are sorting throught the barrage of contradictory messages thrown their way, and through the comic perspective and complex emotions of life at the corssroads. Evan, in particular, is in a quandary. He's the newcomer and needs to figure out a way to get all the cool kids to his bar mitzvah. With its contagious energy and humor, 13 is a musical that speaks to teens, parents, and anyone who thrived or just survived those tumultuous years of classes and cliques.
