Our annual holiday show returns for a third season!
“In the quest for ideal holiday entertainment, Striking 12 strikes gold.” –Los Angeles Times
An overworked man who’s had enough holiday cheer makes a New Year’s Eve resolution: to stay home. On another New Year’s Eve, a continent away—and a century earlier—Hans Christian Andersen’s Little Match Girl tries unsuccessfully to sell her matches in the snow. The man’s winter doldrums disappear when the two stories are brought together. The show springs to life through eclectic new music combining pop-rock, classical, jazz, musical comedy and old-fashioned uplift with a healthy dose of 21st-century skepticism.
By Brendan Milburn, Rachel Sheinkin, and Vallerie Vigoda
