Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winning The Last Five Years has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine‘s ten best shows of 2001. A testament to the show’s longevity, and spurred by the show’s regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Oscar-nominated actress Anna Kendrick and Tony-nominated actor Jeremy Jordan.
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically. Moving, funny, with hauntingly beautiful music… yet another show in our 2017 season that teaches us about love.
