★ ★ ★ ★ – Time Out New York

Coming off a successful run in New York, Critic’s Pick Hundred Days is a “luminous musical memoir” (The New York Times) that combines the emotion of live theatre with the electricity of a live concert. Filled with “infectious melodies” (KQED), this uncensored and exhilarating true story is sure to “take your breath away” (San Jose Mercury News).

Tickets start at $35
A limited number of Area 3 – $20 tickets for Hundred Days are made available one week before the first performance.

Please note this theatrical concert contains adult themes and language, and runs 90 minutes without an intermission.
