Off-Broadway musical Striking 12, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s short story The Little Match Girl, will be staged at the Union Theatre this Christmas.
The emphasis is on Off-West End musicals I’ve seen recently, all of which have things to recommend them – Miracle on 34th Street and The Little Match Girl to get you into the Christmas spirit, The Woman in White to re-evaluate this overlooked Andrew Lloyd Webber and Barnum to see the Menier transformed and mourn the loss of the American circus institution.
Emily Cochrane plays the title role in Keith Strachan’s 40th-anniversary production of The Little Match Girl, now running at London’s Tabard Theatre until 31 December 2017.
