The story concerns the life of 13-year-old Evan Goldman as he moves from New York City to Appleton, Indiana and his dilemma when the move conflicts with the celebration of hisBar Mitzvah. All Evan wants is 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. 13 premiered in 2007 in Los Angeles and transferred to Broadway on September 16, 2008.
