One of the most frequently produced new musicals of the last decade 13 is a rollicking musical comedy featuring a cast exclusively made up of teenagers. Essentially thirteen thirteen(ish)-year-olds as a matter of fact.
Evan Goldman is two months from turning thirteen years old, living happily in New Your City, arguably the greatest city on Earth, when his world is blown apart by his parents' divorce. He is dragged away from his familiar life to live with his mother in a small town in Indiana. Facing a new life in a new place where the culture is a bit alien to him and with his Bar Mitzvah getting closer every day, Evan has to navigate who he wants to be versus who he really is, and see if he can make it through the fall without losing the best friends he'll every have.
