The Last 5 Years
Jason Robert Brown's popular 2001 musical The Last Five Years tells the story of two twenty-somethings who fall in loveand out of it againover the course of a five year relationship. Jamie, an up-and-coming writer, struggles to balance his sudden success with his increasingly tumultuous love life, while Cathy, an aspiring actress, deals with the frustrations of her own stalled career while watching her husband from the sidelines. Jamie tells his side of the tale in chronological order, while Cathy relives the relationship backwards, with both stories intersecting in the middle, on their wedding day. The musical features memorable songs "Still Hurting," "Shiksa Goddess," "The Next Ten Minutes," "Goodbye Until Tomorrow" and more.
Exploring their love story mostly through song, Jamie and Cathy are accompanied by an ensemble of strings, guitar, bass and piano. The Last Five Years' intimate Schorr Family Firehouse Stage setting, imaginative design, gorgeous melodies and tender love story create a bittersweet evening at the theater that is not to be missed.
