When we asked Moira Smiley if she knew of any interesting artists who were Covid-sheltering in Vermont this year, she immediately asked me if we knew about the Bengsons. We certainly did! Natalie had the opportunity to hear Abigail and Shaun Bengson, a composing and performing married duo, in at the Under the Radar Festival in New York City a few years ago and loved their intimate, folk-inflected, dramatic, relatable, and affecting songs. They have appeared at venues across the country and around the world. Three of their singles have been featured on “So You Think You Can Dance” (FOX). Their theater work includes Hundred Days (La Jolla Playhouse, New York Theatre Workshop, The Public Theater, Know Theater, Z Space, US Tour), The Lucky Ones (Ars Nova), Where the Mountain Meets the Sea (ATL’s Humana Festival), Sundown, Yellow Moon (Ars Nova/WP), Anything That Gives Off Light (Edinburgh Theatre Festival, US Tour), Hurricane Diane (New York Theatre Workshop, Two River Theatre), You’ll Still Call Me By Name (New York Live Arts, Jacob’s Pillow), The Place We Built (The Flea), and Iphigenia in Aulis (Classic Stage Company). They have received the Jonathan Larson and Richard Rogers awards and nominations for the Drama Desk, Drama League, and Lucile Lortel awards. Abigail Bengson has appeared on High Maintenance (HBO) and toured as a member of tUnE-YaRds, including an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
