Everyone who lives in New York and hasn’t already seen it should immediately get tickets to Striking 12, a glorious adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Match Girl” by the band Groovelily and Tony-Award-winning bookwriter (and my occasional collaborator) Rachel Sheinkin. The most enjoyable evening I’ve spent in the theater in a while. It closes this Friday, so don’t delay.
And yes, the new house is in pretty much the same neighborhood as the old one. So there may be an ancient Indian burial ground in my future yet.
