The cast of 13: The Musical
Here is the cast list for the Netflix readaptation of the Broadway musical.
Evan Goldman played by Eli Golden
Eli Golden is a budding actor who started his career in acting with commercials ever since he was six. The actor is known for his roles in popular titles like Orange Is the New Black, The Wizard of Lies, Hide and Seek, Trouble, Sneaky Pete, Lincoln Rhyme: The Hunt for the Bone Collector and Deception. His latest feature is in the Netflix musical 13: The Musical, where he stars as Evan Goldman.
Evan is a 13 year old boy who is reeling from his parents’ divorce and his sudden relocation to a new place where he is eager to make new friends. Hoping to make his upcoming bar mitzvah the best party ever, Evan is the every high school kid who is trying his best to fit in with the crowd.
Gabriella Uhl as Patrice
Gabriella Uhl made her first professional debut as Kate in Annie at the Westchester Broadway Theater. The budding actress also played the role of Sophie in the first national tour of School of Rock.
