One Act Solo by Abigail Nessen Bengson
live music by "one man (hus)band" Shaun McClain Bengson
Directed by David Eppel www.bengsons.com
Abigail Nessen Bengson's "The Magic Show: The Story of the Barefoot Angels"
is the story of two American communities, one devastated by Hurricane Katrina on the Gulf Coast and the other by a volcano eruption in Santa Ana, El Salvador. Nessen Bengson channels the voices of six good-hearted and passionate characters who dance, weep, laugh, seduce, share their stories, tell dirty jokes and sing music from old-time 12-bar blues to Salvadoran hip-hop and zydeco. It's a whirlwind one-act solo performance with live music by "one man (hus)band" Shaun McClain Bengson.
