A rewired version of "The Little Match Girl" by Hans Christian Anderson - Opens Friday, December 11, 2020 and runs through December 13, 2020
Inspired, in part, by Andersen’s classic fairy tale, Striking 12 tells the story of a grumpy overworked New Yorker who resolves to spend New Year’s Eve alone in his apartment, when an unexpected visitor brings some much-needed cheer. The evening springs to life through an eclectic score that combines pop, rock, jazz, showtunes, and more.
