Director Jonathan Kronenberger, takes us back in time. We can all relate to 13. Whether we were the geek, poser, jock, or the beauty queen we felt the same way at age 13. We all experienced being a Wannabe. Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and is plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parent's divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a higher link of the food chain ... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!? With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in - and standing out! Based on the book by Dan Elish and Robert Horn, with choreography by Caitlin Riley, and music direction by Larry Goodpaster, you are sure to get lost in those memories of being 13. And for those who are 13 or under, it really does get better.
Beck Center is located at 17801 Detroit Avenue in Lakewood, just ten minutes west of downtown Cleveland. Free onsite parking is available. For more information visit beckcenter.org or call Beck Center Customer Service at 216.521.2540 x10.
