EXTENDED through April 28

★★★★ The lucky ones, the show suggests, are those who, born into damage, can still “open up.” Abigail Bengson, with her extraordinarily expressive musical and authorial voice, does so magnificently.

Indie-music duo The Bengsons spin a memory-tale of teenaged passion, ideals lived to the limits, family shattered and faith lost — all in hope of finding a way home again. Through soulful electro-folk songs, this driving, semi-autobiographical story grabs joy and grief with the same hand and holds them tightly, in a radical affirmation of being alive.

See the next world premiere musical commissioned and developed by “one of the most adventurous off-broadway companies” (NY Times) Ars Nova (KPOP, Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812), and created by the team behind the “luminous” (NY Times) Hundred Days: musical duo The Bengsons, Sarah Gancher, Emmy-nominee Sonya Tayeh, and Obie Award-winning Anne Kaufman.
