Thrilling, heart-pounding music and one of the most influential stories of all time unite in The 12, for what Broadwayworld.com calls "a powerful rock and roll experience that rises up from where Jesus Christ Superstar ends.” The 12 enacts the ultimate test of faith faced by the disciples in the wake of their leader’s unthinkable death with an original, authentic classic rock music score. Created by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning playwright Robert Schenkkan (All the Way, The Kentucky Cycle) and award-winning composer Neil Berg (Grumpy Old Men, Prince and the Pauper), The 12 is a rockin’ and profoundly honest journey of fear, doubt, and ultimately, love.

Producing Partners: Singleton Family Foundation, Daniel L. Ritchie

Special thanks to the Harold & Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust for its continued support of new play development at The Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
