Striking 12 is a unique hybrid of riveting musical theater and an electrifying pop-rock concert. It tells the story of a grumpy, overworked New Yorker who has resolved to spend New Year’s Eve alone when an incandescent figure arrives at their door with the promise to chase away the winter doldrums. Striking 12 is a festive tale filled with wit, emotion, and musicianship, creating an anti-holiday musical celebration about rediscovering and reconnecting to the true spirit of the season. The New York Times called it “a cross between a rock concert and a holiday show for people who don’t like holiday shows.”
