Ryan Tucker plays Richie in 13, the third show in the 2013-2014 Civic Youth Theatre season at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Jason Robert Brown wrote the music and lyrics, and Dan Elish and Robert Horn wrote the book.
Question: Why did you audition for 13?
Ryan Tucker: I wanted to branch out and try being in a musical.
Q: Who is Richie?
R.T.: Richie hangs out with Brett and Eddie. He's sort of a bystander. I like playing this role because I enjoy singing, and I like being in the movie theater scene.
Q: What is the best age, whether you've already reached it or not?
R.T.: 16. I will get to drive.
