Ghostlight Records will release an original cast recording of The Bengsons’ folk-punk musical Hundred Days, seen Off-Broadway last December in an acclaimed new production at New York Theatre Workshop. The album, to be released September 21, will feature the cast of the NYTW production.
In Hundred Days, real-life married couple Abigail and Shaun Bengson (the duo also behind Ars Nova's The Lucky Ones) detail the story of how they fell in love and embrace life as if they only had 100 days to live. The show featured a book co-written with The Place We Built playwright Sarah Gancher and was directed by Anne Kauffman with movement by Sonya Tayeh.
The cast of Hundred Days was made up of 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, Family Matters LLC, Alexander R. Donnelly, and Dana M. Lerner serving as executive producers.
Hundred Days was originally commissioned, developed, and produced by Z Space and piece by piece productions. The show will be performed at San Diego’s La Jolla Playhouse this fall, followed by a national tour.
The album is available to pre-order at GhostlightRecords.com.
