30 is the New 13 is the story of Jason, a musician who abandoned his law degree to move in with his grandmother and pursue his lifelong passion. With no record contract in site, he thinks it's probably time to throw in the towel. But then, fresh off her bat-mitzvah, his cousin Rhonnie suggests another option -- an adult Bar Mitzvah. Perfect -- a fast path to score quick money, fund his album and find an agent. And, who knows, maybe finally prove to his family that he is, in fact, an adult?
The cast shines in this coming of age story which explores modern challenges of faith, fame, success, happiness and our collective desire to pursue the career we love. Starring Jeff Asch, David Gironda Jr., Oliviana Marie, Deanne Mencher, Brice Howard and Elaine Kratofil.
30 Is The New 13 features original music written by Jason Mesches.
