The Jason Robert Brown-Dan Elish-Robert Horn musical 13, following a teenager who moves from New York City to small-town Indiana, may materialize on the big screen, according to Tony-winning composer Brown.
Brown, who sat down with WBAI radio host David Kenney, said in an interview, "There's still a long way to go before [The] Bridges [of Madison County] opens [on Broadway], and if Honeymoon in Vegas manages to take its step to Broadway after Paper Mill, then that will be consuming a lot of my time. And then there's the movie of 'The Last Five Years' coming out… I believe — knock on wood — that there will be a movie of 13 coming up maybe in the next year, so that's really thrilling to me."
As for other upcoming projects, Brown said he is adapting a piece with playwright Claudia Sheer and writing another piece with Marsha Norman, who penned the book for the Broadway-bound Bridges of Madison County.
