And another one bites the dust. According to Playbill, "13, the new middle school-set musical with songs by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, will play its final performance at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre Jan. 4, 2009." The show will have played 105 regular performances when it closes, which is about 11.67 times more than American Buffalo. [Playbill]
