About

A modern musical fairy tale to delight both those who love or hate the holidays

Helen-Hayes-winning actor Alan Naylor leads an ensemble of actor/singer/musicians in this cross between a concert and urban fairy tale. 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 actor/musicians playing an eclectic score that combines pop, rock, jazz, showtunes, and more.

“The most important ingredient for a successful musical is a first-rate score, and this one is terrific…the lyrics are alive with wit and humor, and they don’t shy away from surging emotion.” – Charles Isherwood, New York Times

The witty and deeply moving script weaves three stories and settings: contemporary New York City, 19th century Denmark, and the very room in which the show is presented. Through simple, unpretentious theater created through the voices and instruments of the performers, Striking 12 reminds us that “the world looks like new… on the first day of the year.”
