STRIKING 12 Musical Team Debuts New Show in Silicon Valley: SJ Mercury News On the Bay Area as Hotbed for New Musicals

TRW is proud to represent GrooveLily‘s brilliant STRIKING 12, a new musical spin on The Little Matchgirl story and LONG STORY SHORT, an adaptation of a play by David Schulner called “An Infinite Ache.” GrooveLily is a theatrical power-pop trio consisting of Valerie Vigoda, Brendan Milburn, and Gene Lewin. They have existed, in one form or another, since 1994, and in addition to their phenomenal records are masterful creators of new musical theatre. Along with STRIKING 12 and LONG STORY SHORT, the lovely Lilys have created sensational musicals including SLEEPING BEAUTY WAKES, A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM, and ERNEST SHACKELTON LOVES ME.

Their newest show, WHEELHOUSE, opens June 9th, 2012 at Theatre Works Silicon Valley. In a comically touching ode to the road, a traveling rock band cuts back on expenses, hitting the highway in a well-worn Winnebago. When their plan backfires with a bang, it threatens the sweet harmonies that hold them together. GrooveLily stars in this irresistible autobiographical musical about traveling tunesmiths in desperate need of a tune-up. TRW will be in California for the opening night performance on June 9th and we are super excited to see this hot new show!
