Abigail and Shaun Bengson are a married couple that formed a family band. They are performing a show that tells their true life story. The show is more like an indie rock concert by Arcade Fire than a musical. They talk about their whirlwind meeting leading to them getting married after only three weeks of dating. After a car accident, they go on a journey of living as if they only had 100 days left to love.
The first performance of Hundred Days was on January 4, 2017 at the New York Theater Workshop. Shaun and Abigail played themselves in this original run.
The cast makes a great band together. They all sing very well in addition to playing multiple instruments. Emile Modaff is excellent as Abigail Bengson. They play Abigail so well that the audience isn’t sure if this story is actually about them. Royen Kent is charming as Shaun and he plays the mandolin beautifully. Alec Phan alternates playing Shaun with Royen. Mel Vitaterna’s solo as Max is superb. The rest of the ensemble includes Grace Bobber, David Gordon-Johnson, Lucas “Looch” Johnson, and Brennan Urbi.
