Striking Twelve in Broadway STRIKING TWELVE
Flat Rock Playhouse
On New Year's eve, an over-worked and under-inspired single guy who's had enough of holiday cheer makes a resolution: to stay home and go to bed early. On another New Year's eve, a continent away – and more than a century earlier – Hans Christian Andersen's Little Match girl tries unsuccessfully to sell her matches in the snow. The two stories are brought together when a young woman selling special "full-spectrum holiday light bulbs to combat Seasonal Affective Disorder" shows up at the grumpy man's door. This exciting alternative to the typical holiday show features amazing, modern holiday music performed live in a show that will have The Playhouse Downtown buzzing.

CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE is "so full of energy it could end our dependence on oil" according to the New York Daily News and "stuffed with so much holiday cheer and audacious acts, Scrooge would exit with a big ol' smile on his face" proclaims the Erie Times News about this "Broadway-worthy spectacle". Renowned director Neil Goldberg, creator of the groundbreaking Broadway hit CIRQUE DREAMS JUNGLE FANTASY, re-imagines the holiday season with CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE. An international cast of over 30 multi-talented and brilliantly costumed artists come to life and perform astonishing feats of disbelief.

The perfect way to come in from the cold, forget the holiday stresses and rediscover the magic of the season.
