Synopsis: With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, "13 JR." is a musical about fitting in and standing out! Just months away from his Bar Mitzvah, Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents' divorce. Now the new kid at school, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order or else his Bar Mitzvah could be a complete flop!
