Experience an amazing night of high-flying feats and stunning imagery from Cirque du Soleil. This magical romance, inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest, takes you to a mysterious island where goddesses walk the land and the rhythm of life is ruled by the cycles of the moon. The daughter of Queen Prospera is undergoing the rituals of her coming-of-age ceremony when a group of young men, caught up in a storm, become stranded on the island. Prospera's daughter falls in love with one of the brave sailors, but the two lovers must overcome many trials and setbacks before finding peace together. As the story unfolds, the dazzling arts of Cirque du Soleil illustrate the tale. The island world of Amaluna bursts to life with jugglers, aerial performers, dancers, unicyclists and much more.

Quotes & Highlights
“Thoroughly Winning! More Artfully Crafted and engaging than virtually all the standard-mold musicals these days. Alive with Wit, Humor and Emotion.” —Charles Isherwood, New York Times
“As Much Rock Concert as Theater. The Harmonies Induce Chills.” —Mark Blankenship, Variety
“GrooveLily Rocks!” —Associated Press
Tis the season. Deal with it. Come take a hip trip with the indie pop-rock band GrooveLily as they spread some holiday warmth on cold winter nights performing their acclaimed musical, Striking 12, at Off-Broadway’s Daryl Roth Theatre.
Striking 12 is the story of a Grumpy Guy who decides to avoid the hectic, loveless world on New Year’s Eve, until he’s visited by an incandescent salesgirl with the promise to chase away his winter doldrums.
Combining pop-rock, musical comedy and old-fashioned uplift with a healthy dose of 21st-century skepticism, this festive tale will ignite the holiday spirit and illuminate the coming season with an electrifying, rockin’ performance that cannot be matched.
p. Directed by Tony Award winner Ted Sperling (The Light in the Piazza), Striking 12 is written by Brendan Milburn (book, music and lyrics), Tony Award winner Rachel Sheinkin (book and lyrics) and Valerie Vigoda (book, music and lyrics). The score features songs such as “Visions in the Matchlight,” “Give the Drummer Some,” “Caution to the Wind” and “Screwed-Up People Make Great Art.”
