Set on New Year’s Eve 1999 at the dawn of a new millennium in an upscale New York apartment, twelve Manhattan socialites celebrate with an intimate dinner party.  New resolutions, past mistakes and uncertain future merge into one explosive and life-altering evening.

 “When Midnight Strikes is rancorously diverting. In Fenton Gray’s stylish production the dialogue is at its best when it’s at its bitchiest, and the songs likewise thrill most when the gloves come off.”  – Robert Shore, Time Out (Critics Choice)
