Married folk-rock duo The Bengsons bring intimate, musical storytelling to this exclusive, limited engagement in the Marx Theatre. Based in New York City and Vermont, Abigail and Shaun Bengson have performed off-Broadway, across the country and around the world. Called “eccentrically wholesome … with a gutsy pop-folk style” by The New York Times, The Bengsons will present a collection of their songs in this entertaining concert-style, theatrical memoir. Originally from Dayton, their video for The Keep Going Song has been viewed over 4 million times, and three of their singles have been featured on “So You Think You Can Dance.” If you loved any of the intimate musicals presented in the Rosenthal Shelterhouse over the years, you’ll want to experience An Evening with The Bengsons!
Running Time: The show will run approximately 90 minutes, with no intermission.
Advisory: An Evening with The Bengsons is recommended for ages 13 and up.
