With soaring vocals, frenetic rhythms and joyful choruses, Hundred Days is a hybrid of music and theater for a new generation. Created by married couple and NYC music duo Shaun and Abigail Bengson, the show tells the story of Will and Sarah, whose relationship is cut short by a terminal illness. They take the 100 days they have left together to live to the fullest, creating a lifetime of memories. The show follows their crazy adventures, pain and sorrow, and their eventual path to peace. The Bengsons are joined by a full band and choir in this production that also features visually stunning sets and surreal staging. Learn More

Word for Word consistently goes far and above simple storytelling with their staged readings; I have always love their productions.
You should not miss their current production of You Know When the Men Are Gone--two moving stories about individuals trying to put back the pieces of themselves that were blown apart by war.
Much of the power comes from what is not said directly, because how does one explain the nightmare that led to one man's survival and another's demise? How can anyone control how others treat those who have suffered and continue to do so?
Powerful, powerful performances bring these stories to life. You will not only be watching a show, you will, like a family member, become engaged in their struggles.
