News PHOTO CALL: GrooveLily Brings Striking 12 Back to NYC
Striking 12, the holiday-set concept-concert musical by members of the pop trio GrooveLily and Tony Award-winning librettist Rachel Sheinkin, returned to New York City for a Dec. 26-31 engagement at the Metropolitan Room.

With songs by GrooveLily's Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda, the show is sung, acted and played by the songwriters, along with GrooveLily drummer-singer Gene Lewin. Striking 12 melds a modern story of a grumpy guy on New Year's Eve with the story of Hans Christian Andersen's little match girl. Sheinkin is a Tony Award winner for her …Spelling Bee libretto.
