Full Casting Set for The Lucky Ones
A new musical by the Bengsons will make its debut.
Ars Nova, Piece by Piece Productions, and Z Space have announced additional details for the world premiere of The Lucky Ones, a new show from the five-member creative team behind the musical Hundred Days.
The Lucky Ones features a score by Abigail Bengson and Shaun Bengson, a book by the Bengsons and Sarah Gancher, direction by Anne Kauffman, and choreography by Sonya Tayeh.
In The Lucky Ones, indie-music duo the Bengsons spin a memory tale of teenage 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, semiautobiographical story grabs joy and grief with the same hand and holds them tightly in a radical affirmation of being alive.
The 18-member ensemble cast of The Lucky Ones includes Abigail Bengson, Shaun Bengson, Damon Daunno, Jennifer Morris, Tom Nelis, Maryann Plunkett, Myra Lucretia Taylor, and Amelia Workman. Newly announced to complete the company are Mia DeWeese, Tilly Evans-Krueger, Lenin Fernandez, Ashley Pérez Flanagan, Lindsey Hailes, Dani Markham, Zach McNally, Pearl Rhein, Ida Saki, and Adina Verson.
The creative team includes Rachel Hauck (scenic design), Ásta Bennie Hostetter (costume design), Amith Chandrashaker (lighting design), Nick Kourtides (sound design), Noah Mease (prop design), Kimberly Grigsby (music supervision), and Wiley DeWeese (music direction).
Performances of The Lucky Ones will take place March 19-April 21 at the Connelly Theater.
