You don't have to take our word for it.  Consider what the Washington
Post reviewer
said a few weeks ago (November, 2009) --

[Quote]
"Striking 12," the musical created .... by the pop-rock band GrooveLily
and playwright Rachel Sheinkin ... [for the Arena Stage at Crystal City]
is not your grandma's Christmas pageant. It's a hip, quirky retelling of
Hans Christian Andersen's "The Little Match Girl" in a contemporary city
setting..... Molly Smith, Arena's artistic director, says the musical is "a
story about finding love in unusual places." [Endquote -- from Kay Coyte's
review in the Washington Post].

The performance uses sparse sets and costumes, and is driven by the
exuberant acting/singing of GrooveLily's Brendan Milburn/piano, Valerie
Vigoda [P '87]/electric violin and Gene Lewin [P '84]/drums....

The show has garnered accolades everywhere. Join us in welcoming Val Vigoda and Gene Lewin.
