  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF Hundred Days

    What if ‘Until Death Do Us Part’ Means a ‘Hundred Days’?

    Ben Brantley

    January 5, 2017:

    Say, how would you like to spend 90 minutes with a very married young couple telling you all about how they met and fell in love (at first sight!) and took a crazy road trip together? Among prospects for a thrilling night out, this one would appear to rank with watching slides of your accountant’s vacation in Brussels.

    But Shaun and Abigail Bengson, singing songwriters who perform as (yep) the Bengsons, turn out to be surprisingly stimulating company. Their concert-style memoir, Hundred Days, part of this year’s Under the Radar festival at the Public Theater, may suggest a musical variation on an anecdote-laden wedding announcements in a Sunday newspaper.
