Everyone's Favorite Jennifer Garner Movie Is Being Turned into a Broadway Musical
Get your Razzles ready.
The 2004 romantic comedy 13 Going on 30 is currently being adapted into a Broadway musical, and we couldn't be more excited. The film version, which starred Jennifer Garner, Mark Ruffalo, and Judy Greer, tells the story of a teenage girl named Jenna who dreams about escaping her awkward suburban middle school life. With the power of wishing dust, she transforms into her 30-year-old self who has a successful career at a fashion magazine and a gorgeous New York City apartment. The only problem? Her childhood best friend (and impending love interest) is no longer a part of her life.
The film’s screenwriters, Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa, are set to write the stage script, Andy Fickman is set to produce and direct the show, and Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner will handle music and lyrics. And while most of the songs in the show are expected to be original, some of the 1980s tunes that were featured in the movie—like Michael Jackson's "Thriller" and Pat Benatar's "Love Is a Battlefield"—might possibly be included. We have our fingers crossed for a reenactment of that epic dance scene.
