This hip holiday show from Falcon Theater features musicians, actors and marionettes in the tale of a grumpy, overworked bachelor determined to stay at home on New Year's Eve and read Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl -- until a chance encounter changes his life and his view of the season. Created by Tony Award-winning writer Rachel Sheinkin (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and the piano-violin-drum trio GrooveLily, Striking 12 makes for a musical celebration of new beginnings.

In an attempt to break out of the ordinary and try something new I made the trip to Anderson Township to catch this show. Bad choice. I could not understand a single word of the script, the actors made such a horrible attempt to "fake" an English accent that it was nearly impossible to make out any of the three jokes they cracked during the show.
All in all, it was an absolute was of my time and I hated it. I'm not making a trip to Anderson Township any time soon.
Quotes & Highlights
- "While preserving the beautiful intricacies of this construction, Stoppard has embellished Razzle with a dazzle of verbal wit an unremitting firework display of puns, crossword puzzle tricks and sly sexual innuendos." --London Daily Telegraph
This recent hit in London is a free adaptation of the 19th century farce by Johann Nestroy that provided the plot for Thornton Wilder's The Merchant of Yonkers, which ultimately led to Hello, Dolly! The story is basically one long chase, chiefly after two naughty grocer's assistants who, when their master goes off on a binge with a new mistress, escape to Vienna on a spree.
