13, A New Musical Set To Open On Broadway This October
Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown's new show 13 has announced dates for it's Broadway run. Previews will begin Sept. 16 at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre toward an opening on Oct. 5.The cast is comprised entirely of teenagers, but the stories that come to life are ageless, the emotions they explore timeless, the laughter and the memories they provide priceless," according to the producers.
According to production notes, "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 maneuver his way through the minefield of High School to become part of the 'in-crowd.'"
I have been a big fan of Mr. Brown's music ever since I saw his production of Parade in 1999.He is also the writer of Songs For A New World and another favorite The Last Five Years. If the music is as half as good as those then it is sure to be a winner. And for those of you that can't wait until October I suggest checking out the shows official website at www.13the musical.com. You can also download the title track as well.
