“It’s been a bit since I’ve been on tour and I’m incredibly excited to bring the movie to life on stage,” says Martinez, “I’m putting all of my energy into making it not only visually stunning and pleasing to the senses but also a fun learning experience and a safe place to express yourself and be accepted for exactly who you are.”

“K-12” marks Martinez’s long anticipated follow-up to her RIAA platinum certified, 2015 debut album, “CRY BABY.” Produced by Michael Keenan with the exception of one song produced by Kinetics & One Love (who previously collaborated with Martinez on such hits as “Dollhouse” and “Carousel”), the album serves as a soundtrack companion to an eerily enchanting new musical film, written, directed, and starring Martinez. The official K-12trailer is streaming now HEREand quickly received a stunning 2 million views in just 3 days of its premiere.

K-12will have its official Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday, September 3rd, exclusively at Hollywood’s famed Arclight Cinerama Dome. An official New York City premiere will follow on Thursday, September 5that the AMC Empire 25 in Times Square, with both premieres officially SOLD OUT within 24 hours. That same night will see K-12shown as a one-night-only global event in theatres around the world.

About The Author

Elizabeth Delphin loves a good time! A fun concert, a good dinner out with friends, those weird artsy-fartsy festivals. If she's not at the office or at home, she's likely walking her dog Milo at Runyon Canyon (seriously, sometimes she goes 2-3 times a day).
