The Last Five Years

The Last Five Years
This modern musical ingeniously chronicles the five year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up and from break-up to meeting.

Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk winner The Last Five Years has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of Time Magazine's 10 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 Anna Kendrick and 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; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

Featuring a two-person cast, The Last Five Years is a great opportunity for actors with both range and stamina. This intimate musical is perfect for small theatre companies and black box venues.
