The cast is now set for New York Theatre Workshop's presentation of Hundred Days, The Bengsons’ folk-punk musical 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. Performances will begin at the Off-Broadway theatre November 15.
Kauffman, who returns to NYTW followed her acclaimed staging of Amy Herzog’s Mary Jane, will direct 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 show was originally commissioned, developed and produced by Z Space and piece by piece productions.
The production will feature 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.
