Richard Seyd will direct the concerts with music direction by Wendy Bobbitt Cavett. Adam Friedson and Leftfield Productions produce.

The 12, according to press notes, "takes one of the most well-known stories in history and explores the least known and most intriguing aspects of it: how twelve ordinary individuals torn apart by the unthinkable death of their leader came together to create one of the most powerful movements ever known to mankind."
Composer and lyricist Berg's original score, press notes continue, "pairs each apostle with a well-known, classic rock style referencing U2, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, Eric Clapton, AC/DC, Anthrax, Aretha Franklin, Nirvana and many other of rock 'n' roll's greatest bands."
