Fresh off of their autobiographical indie folk musical Hundred Days at New York Theater Workshop, The Bengsons and the entire creative team (and even some cast members!) are heading over to Ars Nova this Spring for The Lucky Ones.
The cast? Shaun and Abigail Bengson themselves, 2017 40 Under 40 star Damon Daunno of Beardo and Hadestown, two cast members from Indecent, and Myra Lucretia Taylor who is having a impressive year with School Girls, The Big Sick, and Atlanta. This cast is one dreamboat after the next!
The Bengsons (pictured) write incredibly good music that works really well as a 2018 version of what musical theater can (and should?) be. And: Ars Nova is where both The Great Comet and KPOP got their start. This is the kind of show that this Hype Alert section of YesBroadway is ALL about. Get hyped for The Lucky Ones!
Runs March 19 - April 21.
