You better stock up on your Razzles because the Broadway lights are going to be shining on the 2004 rom-com, 13 Going On 30!
If you don’t know the story, 13 Going On 30 follows the adorable and bubbly Jenna who uses wishing dust to become a grown up on her thirteenth birthday. Suddenly, she finds herself in a very grown up world, with an amazing career, and a hunky boyfriend. However, she wants nothing more to reconnect with her best childhood friend, Matt. In the movie, Jenna is played by Jennifer Garner and Matt is played by Mark Ruffalo.
One of the producers of the Broadway show, Andy Fickman, says that the story has “all of the elements of a great musical: comedy, romance, an empowering message– and a touch of magic,” reported Deadline.
The songs will be all original but it is rumored to include a killer dance number to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” and a delightful rendition of Pat Benatar’s “Love is a Battlefield” (think of a super fun sleepover party!). Dates haven’t been set yet but you can guarantee we’ll be scouring for some wishing dust that it will come soon!
