The Last Five Years


This intimate 2002 Off-Broadway musial chronicles the five-year relationship between Jamie, a rising novelist, and Cathy, a struggling actress. Expressed through the evocative music and lyrics of Jason Robert Brown, each traces the course of events from opposite directions (forwards in time for Jamie, backwards for Cathy). At once innovative and familiar, The Last Five Years is filled with insights and observations about the joys and stresses that emerge when two creative people fall in love.


Two artists and one piano reimagine The Last 5 Years - with breathtaking simplicity.

Though the beloved memory musical has received multiple restagings, a revival and a 2015 film adaptation, no previous production has attempted this approach. Originally conceived 10 years ago out of countless late-night piano sessions in their New Jersey apartment, actors and pianists Katherine Strohmaier (Cathy) and Aaron Lamb (Jamie) have finally brought their crazy idea to the Seattle stage. As the relationship unfolds in a series of solos, each accompanies the other, switching off seamlessly until they both play at once, during the musicals only duet.

First produced in Olympia, WA by Harlequin Productions in 2016, this unforgettable production will be staged at Taproot Theatre's Isaac Studio Black Box this September 21 - October 2.

Its complexity will astound you; its grace will melt you. Do not miss it!
