    Striking 12 is a concert-with-a-story, band-is-the-actors, secular holiday show which combines old-fashioned uplift with a healthy dose of 21st-century skepticism.

The show springs to life through an eclectic score that combines indie rock, pop, folk, jazz and Broadway into one cohesive score.

    "This modest show is more artfully crafted and engaging than virtually all the standard-mold musicals coming our way these days." —The New York Times

      Talented musicians in this sweet, but slight, entertainment. Nice touch re cabaret seating for a portion of the room.
