A gift for theatre-goers in Maine: Good Theater‘s STRIKING 12 arrives just in time to wow holiday audiences!
STEVE FEENEY of the Portland Press-Herald gives the show a rave review, writing, “…the material was first-rate…”, “delightful and thoroughly engaging show,” and, “…this show’s imaginative storytelling ties it all together…a flowing ribbon of theatrical fun.”
Inspired, in part, by Hans Christian Andersen’s, “The Little Match Girl,” it tells the story of a grumpy, overworked New Yorker who resolves to spend New Year’s Eve along 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.
- By Brendan Milburn, Rachel Sheinkin, and Vallerie Vigoda
