HUNDRED DAYS is an uncensored, exhilarating and heartrending true story about embracing uncertainty, taking a leap, and loving as if you only had 100 days to live. With magnetic chemistry and anthemic folk-punk music, creators Abigail and Shaun Bengson explore a fundamental question: how do we make the most of the time that we have?

A New York Times Critics' Pick, HUNDRED DAYS was hailed as "a luminous musical memoir that celebrates and laments the elusive radiance of a shared life." New York Magazine called the show "a series of ecstatic songs that make the case for living and loving. Hundred Days shines a light in the darkness. There's something about that way of moving through the world-chest up, heart open, irony pushed firmly aside-that feels downright daring right now."

HUNDRED DAYS will be directed by Lucky Stiff, with music direction by Matthew Muniz and movement by Collin Quinn Rice.

The cast is led by Emilie Modaff as "Abigail Bengson" with Royen Kent and Alec Phan alternating in the role of "Shaun Bengson," with Grace Bobber, David Gordon-Johnson, Lucas “Looch” Johnson, Brennan Urbi and Melanie Vitaterna.
