Ars Nova, piece by piece productions, and Z Space have announced the world premiere of The Lucky Ones, a new show from the five-member creative team behind the current New York Theatre Workshop production of 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 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, semiautobiographical story grabs joy and grief with the same hand and holds them tightly in a radical affirmation of being alive.

The 19-member ensemble cast of The Lucky Ones includes Abigail Bengson, Shaun Bengson, Damon Daunno, Nina Grollman, Jo Lampert, Jennifer Morris, Tom Nelis, Maryann Plunkett, Myra Lucretia Taylor, and Amelia Workman. Additional casting will be announced at a later date.

The design team includes Rachel Hauck (scenic design), Ásta Bennie Hostetter (costume design), Amith Chandrashaker (lighting design), Nick Kourtides (sound design), and Noah Mease (prop design).

Performances of The Lucky Ones will take place March 19-April 21 at the Connelly Theater.

One Night Only

Tuesday August 20th at 7PM in Fort Greene. It’s being presented by MOCADA as a part of their Soul of Brooklyn Festival.  The play is smart, funny, relevant and full of vibrant and familiar characters

The Lee’s Stoop
65 Washington Park, Brooklyn, NY 11205
7:00PM – 8:30PM

Starring Amelia Workman and Pernell Walker (The Butler)

Also, it’s free and open to the public (no tickets needed)! There should be a really interesting seamless sort of organic meta feel in terms of the relationship between audience and performer, which will hopefully get some interesting and healthy conversations started. I’m really excited to explore that dynamic while watching the sun set over Fort Greene Park. I’d love it if you could join me.
