Conceived as a theatrical rock concert, where an underground band performs what could be their final show together, The Twelve "takes one of the most well known stories in history and explores one of 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," according to the authors.
The cast will include Tony Vincent (American Idiot), Sophia Ramos, Michael Lanning, Elaine Caswell, Ron Bohmer (Phantom of the Opera), Capathia Jenkins (The Civil War), Lawrence Clayton (Dreamgirls) and Dustin Brayley (Rent).
Wendy Bobbitt Cavett serves as musical director. Leftfield Productions and Adam Friedson produce the concert.
