Lincoln Center Theater/LCT3 to Present THE KEEP GOING SONGS by The Bengsons Lincoln Center Theater/LCT3 will present the world premiere of THE KEEP GOING SONGS by Abigail and Shaun Bengson, and directed by Caitlin Sullivan, which will begin performances Saturday, April 20 through Sunday, May 26 at the Claire Tow Theater. Opening night is Thursday, May 2.

After selling out last season’s Next@LCT3 concert series, Abigail and Shaun Bengson return to the Claire Tow Theater with the world premiere of THE KEEP GOING SONGS. Telling stories through song, The Bengsons will celebrate the beauty and complexity of life cycles, from a single person to entire ecosystems. Part concert, part wake, part theatrical extravaganza, THE KEEP GOING SONGS is a euphoric and moving journey through the grief of tough times and the rebirth of hope in better days.

THE KEEP GOING SONGS will have sets by Cate McCrea, costumes by Hahnji Jang, lighting by Alejandro Fajardo, and sound by Nick Kourtides.  Kristy Bodall is the Stage Manager.
