Book, Music, and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Dwayne Hartford
There are two perspectives in every love story. The Last Five Years will captivate you with its emotional examination of relationships and ingenious, interchanging structure between present and past.
Intimate and bittersweet, Jason Robert Brown's powerful, award-winning musical chronicles the triumphs, heartbreak, and intricacies of two artists in New York City. Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a literary prodigy, are in love but chasing their dreams to extents they may or may not admit to each other. Fall in and out of love with this hit musical deconstruction and compelling introspection that alternates through time. The musical's unconventional structure unfolds as Cathy tells her story in reverse, from the end of their relationship, and Jamie tells his chronologically, from the beginning. The two come together once – perhaps for the first time – at their wedding in the middle of the show.
