The 12 is directed by Richard Seyd and features Terence Archie, Mike Backes, Jeannette Bayardelle, Anthony Fedorov, Colby Foytik, Colin Hanlon, Jordan Leigh, Andrew Mayer, Christina Sajous, Maximilian Sangerman, Heath Saunders, Jordan Barbour, Brad Standley, Gregory Treco, Tony Vincent and  Erin Willis.

    I doubt I can find words to describe how blown away I was today seeing the last performance of The 12 in Denver. I will follow this show around the country. The individual performances--both acting and singing--were utterly breathtaking. My only regret is that I can't take every person I know to see it! Fantastic.

    WOW!  "The 12" starts with grief and ends with love, with lots of soulful words and music in between.  Please go experience it for yourself!

    So wonderful! I saw it on 4/3 and was not expecting to be blown away. Vocalists were all amazing - had I not been sitting, I might have fallen down when Mother Mary sang. Just heartbreakingly beautiful!

    SO looking forward to seeing The Twelve this week!
