NEWSFLASH: Jason Robert Brown’s 13: the Movie Musical


Above: Jason Robert Brown’s 13

Jason Robert Brown announced on his official website that he has completed a screenplay based on his musical, 13, and that it is being ‘shopped to movie studios’.

The musical, which tells the tale of Evan Goldman who has six weeks to get the cool kids at his new school to come to his Bar Mitzvah or else spend the rest of his school years branded a geek, features a book by Dan Elish with music and lyrics by Brown. The show appeared on Broadway in 2008.

I imagine it will work much in the way that High School Musical worked on the big screen and aim at capturing the same target audience as that franchise and the Glee market.
