IMMEDIATE RELEASE -Kokandy Productions has announced the Chicago premiere of the bold new musical HUNDRED DAYS, featuring music and lyrics by The Bengsons, and book by The Bengsons and Sarah Gancher. Making its Chicago debut after successful runs at La Jolla Playhouse and New York Theatre Workshop, Hundred Days will be helmed by director/performer Lucky Stiff. Casting will be announced shortly. HUNDRED DAYS will play March 6 - April 12, 2020 at The Chopin Theatre, 1543 W Division St. in Chicago. Tickets will be available at www.kokandyproductions.com, or in person at The Chopin Theatre box office. The press opening is Friday, March 13 at 8 pm.


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."


Comments Producing Artistic Director Derek Van Barham, "The question of time is at the heart of every relationship, every project, every gig. 'Is this worth the time I'm putting into it?' In Hundred Days, a couple reckons with an actual expiration date. But what is so beautiful about The Bengsons' creation is that the question spills off the stage into the process and production. It offers reflection for all artists and audiences involved - including the amazingly talented performer/musicians we are beginning to assemble."
