The Lucky Ones Extends at the Connelly Theater
Anne Kauffman directs the world premiere of the new musical by the Bengsons and Sarah Gancher.
Ars Nova, Piece by Piece Productions, and Z Space has announced an extension of the world premiere of The Lucky Ones. The new musical by Abigail and Shaun Bengson and Sarah Gancher will now run through April 28 at the Connelly Theater.
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, Mia DeWeese, Tilly Evans-Krueger, Lenin Fernandez, Ashley Pérez Flanagan, Lindsey Hailes, Dani Markham, Zach McNally, Jennifer Morris, Tom Nelis, Maryann Plunkett, Pearl Rhein, Ida Saki, Myra Lucretia Taylor, Adina Verson, and Amelia Workman.
Under the direction of Anne Kauffman, 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).
