what the critics are saying

Striking 12 strikes gold! The three magnetic performers that make up GrooveLily blend elements of musical theater with rock, folk and rap into a savory musical stew. Ideal entertainment.”
–LA Times

“This holiday-themed show by the pop trio GrooveLily is an inventive presentation that is part theater piece, part concert, and wholly entertaining.”
–The Philadelphia Inquirer

“'Caution to the Wind' and 'Can't Go Home' are both superbly crafted pop numbers...while the exquisite 'Snow Song' captures the quietly mournful tone of Andersen's fairy tale to perfection.”
–Philadelphia Weekly


Striking 12
The New GrooveLily Musical
A rewired version of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl

This clever and inventive concert-musical written by Brendan Milburn, Rachel Sheinkin & Valerie Vigoda features the acclaimed New York-based pop-folk-rock trio GrooveLily (Valerie Vigoda, Brendan Milburn and Gene Lewin). Combining honest old-fashioned uplift with a healthy dose of 21st-century skepticism, it tells the tale of an incandescent salesgirl whose holiday spirit can't be matched.
