Thirteen Summary

Evan Goldman has it all – he's popular, has the perfect family and lives in the greatest city in the world – New York. That is until his parents get divorced and he's forced to move with his Mom… to Indiana. Uprooted from his old life, he has to make new friends and somehow manoeuvre his way through the minefield of High School to become part of the “in-crowd”. A grown-up story about growing up, featuring the only all-teenage cast ever to hit Broadway! With an explosive score by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, 13 is a hilarious musical “filled with radioactive energy” for all ages about discovering that cool is where you find it, and sometimes where you least expect it. (New York Times)

“Radioactive energy! A shiny and brash new musical—buoyant, clever, and genuinely funny.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times

“A disarmingly charming new musical with a raw, rousing score.” Barbara Hoffman, New York Post

“These kids are fabulous!” Jacques le Sourd, The Journal News

“90 blissful minutes! A joyride from beginning to end! A fresh, electrifying original musical—passionate and authentic. We recommend it to anyone who has ever been or will be 13 years old.” Matt Windman, AM New York

“Every bit as sweet as your first kiss—and maybe even more memorable. Enough style to fully charm adults and speak eloquently to kids. The snappy songs move the plot forward like a burst of hormones.” Howard Shapiro, The Philadelphia Inquirer
