When Hundred Days made its New York debut as part of The Public Theater’s “Under the Radar” Festival The New York Times raved “The Bengsons offer luminous hope that a new generation of talent in American theater is taking up Stephen Sondheim’s mantle of exquisite ambivalence.” According to New York Magazine, “Filled with a series of ecstatic songs that make the case for living and loving. Hundred Days shines a light in the darkness.” When the show performed earlier in San Francisco, San Jose Mercury News declared “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 plaintive wail.” KQED Arts added, “the overwhelming experience of Hundred Days is one of joy. The songs are catchy, propulsive, and soul-soaringly jubilant.”
Hundred Days features a book by The Bengsons and Sarah Gancher, music and lyrics by The Bengsons. The show was directed by Anne Kauffman with movement direction by Sonya Tayeh. The recording features the cast of the recent production at New York Theatre Workshop: Colette Alexander, Abigail Bengson, Shaun Bengson, Jo Lampert, Dani Markham and Reggie D. White. The album is produced by The Bengsons, Ian Kagey, and Kurt Deutsch, with Erica Rotstein, Seaview Productions, Dashboard Lights Productions, Alexander R. Donnelly, and Dana M. Lerner serving as executive producers.
