Performances begin November 15 for New York Theatre Workshop's production of Hundred Days, a new folk-punk musical by The Bengsons about embracing life as if you only had 100 days to live. The Anne Kauffman-directed work features a book co-written with The Place We Built playwright Sarah Gancher.
Kauffman, who returns to NYTW followed her acclaimed staging of Amy Herzog’s Mary Jane, directs a cast made up of Jo Lampert (Joan of Arc: Into the Fire), Colette Alexander (you’ll still call me by name), Abigail Bengson (Iphigenia in Aulis), Shaun Bengson (Iphigenia in Aulis), Dani Markham (tUnE-yArDs), and Reggie D. White (I and You).
The show will officially open December 4.
Hundred Days features movement direction by Obie Award winner Sonya Tayeh (you’ll still call me by name). The musical was originally commissioned, developed, and produced by Z Space and piece by piece productions.
The production features set and props design by Kris Stone (The Light Years), costume design by Sydney Gallas, set and lighting design by Andrew Hungerford (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), and sound design by Nicholas Pope (Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812) with stage management by Lindsey Turteltaub.
