HUNDRED DAYS is the uncensored, exhilarating, and heartrending true story of how Abigail and Shaun Bengson met and fell in love, and how that love unleashed their terror of mortality. With magnetic chemistry and anthemic folk-punk music, the Bengsons explore the fundamental question of how to make the most of the time that we have.
Every once in a while you see a show that transcends. Transcends expectations, norms, genres, or the rules of making theatre. That was HUNDRED DAYS for us. We have been fans of The Bengsons for a few years and went to Cincinnati to see a new project they had been working on, and the rest is history. Not quite a musical but more than just a concert, it has been a joy to work with The Bengsons collaborators director Anne Kauffman, writer Sarah Gancher and choreographer Sonya Tayeh to dive into developing a new form of theater that transcends any experience we have produced before.
We are proud to be leading the charge with our great partner Erica Rotstein to shepherd this beautiful experience into New York City and beyond. We can’t wait for you to see what we have dreamed up for you.
“Hundred Days is ABLAZE WITH THE EPHEMERAL NATURE OF LIFE AND LOVE…this unconventional musical, part indie rock opera, part tragic romance, will take your breath away from the first pounding chorus to the last plaintiff wail.”
