A great review of 13 by Thom Dibdin

Bursting with exuberance, big beats and hormonally-enhanced doses of angst, the Forth Children’s Theatre production of 13 The Musical, captures that particularly vicious age when you officially become a teenager.

Alex Bathe stars as Jewish New Yorker Evan Goldman, a happy enough lad despite his parents’ divorce. At least the major event on his horizon, his Bar Mitzvah, will be a success thanks to all his pals.

Except that his mum decides to take them off to Indiana – leaving Evan with only a few weeks to sort out the party in the lamest small town in the vast expanse of lame American small towns. At least he gets on with Patrice, the girl next door, so he’ll have a toehold when the new school term starts. (For the rest of the review read Thom’s excellent blog here.)
