Start December out right with the following theatrical performances.
By Julie LaPorte
Arena Stage presents Striking 12
December 2 through 13
Combining pop-rock, musical comedy and old-fashioned uplift with a healthy dose of 21st-century skepticism, Striking 12 is a unique hybrid of musical theater and live concert performed by celebrated pop-rock trio GrooveLily. From the Tony Award-winning writer Rachel Sheinkin (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) comes this story of a Grumpy Guy who decides to avoid the hectic, loveless world on New Year’s Eve, until he’s visited by an incandescent salesgirl with the promise to chase away his winter doldrums.
