Calling all Dorks, Newbies, Cheerleaders, Jocks and Brainiacs: '13' the musical, is about the trials and tribulations of being 13 years old in Appleton, Indiana. When Evan Goldman is forced to move from New York when his parents get divorced, he just wants to survive the school year... easier said than done! With an unforgettable score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and a live rock band, 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.Music Jason Robert Brown.
