The Last 5 Years
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; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.
Jason Robert Brown won Drama Desk Awards for the music and the lyrics after the Off-Broadway premiere in 2002 starring Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott. The show has since been produced throughout the US and in countries around the world. A much-anticipated revival, directed by JRB, opened at Second Stage Theatre off-Broadway in March 2013. A film based on the musical opens later this year starring Anna Kendrick & Jeremy Jordan.
