“Impossible to resist… Hundred Days succeeds brilliantly.” KQED SF

“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
The theatrical concert, HUNDRED DAYS, is a folk rock odyssey. It is the fierce, triumphant story of a young couple who fall in love, only to have their time together cut short by a fatal illness. They decide to try and live the 3 months they have left together as though it were the 60 years they had imagined they would have. They transform their apartment into a world where they can move through their 20′s, 30′s, 60′s, 80′s, and try to create the experience of a full life together.
