Netflix’s August lineup is starting to heat up, and with lots more titles to be revealed, perhaps 13: The Musical popular Broadway musical adolescent drama could pique your interest.
This will be your classic teen coming-of-age story, with enough music to make the audience swoon. The music will be crucial to the success of this series. Will it be sufficient? Will this be another bland entry on Netflix’s feature slate? We’ll find out soon, but given that it’s based on a Broadway production, this may be a good start.
Here’s all we know so far about Netflix’s 13: The Musical.
Netflix film 13: The Musical release date
On August 12, 2022, the picture will be distributed internationally on the streaming service.
The cast includes:
and many many more..
The film is directed by Robert Horn and the music and lyrics are by Jason Robert Brown.
After his parents’ separation, Evan Goldman (Eli Golden), 12, leaves New York City alongside his mom Jessica (Debra Messing). Evan is upset that he needs to leave all of his friends, his dad (Peter Hermann), and his priest (Josh Peck) behind as his Bar Mitzvah approaches.
When he arrives at his grandma’s (Rhea Perlman) home in tiny-town Walkerton, Indiana, he devises a scheme to make some new friends by making his Bar Mitzvah the trendiest party ever.
Evan quickly discovers that he is not the only one dealing with the all-too-familiar fears of eighth grade as an outcast navigating the intricate circles of friends in his new school.
While his new pals Patrice (Gabriella Uhl) and Archie (Jonathan Lengel) worry about the destiny of the earth and forbidden love, accordingly, popular cheerleader Lucy (Frankie McNellis) anxiously tries to prevent her infatuation with Brett (JD McCrary) and best friend Kendra from kissing (Lindsey Blackwell).
To complicate things even more, Evan invites popular students who’re not fans of Patrice to his party. With these opposing agendas at play, Evan is faced with the daunting challenge of getting everyone together in time for his party or suffering social ruin. Perhaps, approaching 13 isn’t seeming as appealing as it once did.
The trailer, after all, has no surprises. But, for the sake of the fans, let us hope that it stays true to the musical everybody has admired for years.
The picture will almost definitely not set the globe on fire, but that’s not the point. It will be interesting to see whether it can appease the fans, who will be expecting a strong version of the musical.
