'13 Going on 30' Movie is Becoming a Broadway Musical!
13 Going On 30 is headed to Broadway, according to Deadline.
The stage version of the 2004 hit movie, which starred Jennifer Garner, is set to be produced by Andy Fickman, Dean Stolber and Todd Garner, who produced the film version of the story.
The film’s screenwriters Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa will pen the script and work with a team of composers and lyricists to create original music for the production.
“It has all the elements of a great musical: comedy, romance an empowering message — and a touch of magic,” Andy said in a release.
13 Going on 30 centers on a teenager named Jenna who dreams of escaping middle school. When some magic wishing dust transforms her into a glamorous career woman overnight, she realizes adult life isn’t what she expected and there’s more to happiness than being popular.
