Overview

DECLAN BENNETT (Once, Jesus Christ Superstar) and BRONTÉ BARBÉ (Beautiful, The Wild Party) star in the acclaimed Off-Broadway musical STRIKING 12, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Match Girl.

It’s New Years’ Eve and Brendan is done. His fiancée has left him, he’s going to lose his job and his boss is making him work late. The last thing he wants to do is celebrate. A chance encounter with a lightbulb seller changes everything.

Springing to life with a punchy score of pop, rock, jazz and more, Striking 12 is the perfect way to see out 2018. Where will you be when the clock strikes 12?

'The most important ingredient for a successful musical, it has long been acknowledged, is a first-rate score, and this one is terrific.'
- Charles Isherwood, The New York Times.
