“The Bengsons offer luminous hope that a new generation of talent in American theater is taking up Stephen Sondheim’s mantle of exquisite ambivalence.” – Ben Brantley, The New York Times Critics’ Pick
“Gripping, chilling, exhilarating, wild and heart rending…a must see.” – The San Francisco Chronicle
“The performers and the music are wholly engaging, and the rapturous story they tell is emotionally powerful, exploring feelings and fears we know but seldom speak… It might be the most unique and memorable work on a Cincinnati theater stage this summer.” – Citybeat Cincinnati, Critics Pick
“… Engaging and impressive. Romantic, tragic, poetic and remarkably optimistic, ‘Hundred Days’ is an exuberant and impressive way to kick off a season.” – Cincinnati Enquirer

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.
HUNDRED DAYS most recently ran at La Jolla Playhouse (Fall 2018) and New York Theatre Workshop (Fall 2017). The show premiered in NY at The Public Theater’s Under the Radar Festival, and was originally commissioned and produced by Z Space and piece by piece productions in San Francisco.
Premiere production @ Z Space in Spring 2014; Winner, TBA Award for Best New Musical
Second Production @ Know Theatre in Cincinnati in Summer 2015
