Description

THE LAST FIVE YEARS
Written by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Kristina Saldaña
Music Direction by Michael Crider

Fridays and Saturday, February 1, 2, 8, 9, 15, 16, 22, & 23

Jason Robert Brown’s contemporary musical THE LAST FIVE YEARS tells the emotionally powerful story of two twenty-something New Yorkers who dive head first into a marriage fueled by the optimism that comes with finding “the one.” But in a city where professional and personal passions collide and only the strongest relationships survive, navigating the waters of love can sometimes prove too much. Told through opposing intersecting chronologies, Jamie’s story moves forward in time while Cathy’s moves backwards, the two characters emotional timelines navigate one couple's five years together, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. Funny, honest and intimate, with an exuberantly romantic score, THE LAST FIVE YEARS takes a bold look at one young couple’s hope that love endures the test of time.

THE LAST FIVE YEARS features a rotating cast of couples: Baeleigh Bevan, Megan Jarrett, Alex Mitts, and Ellie Sivesind.

Mitts/Sivesind: Feb. 1 & 23
Bevan/Jarrett: Feb. 2 & 22

Mitts/Jarrett: Feb. 8 & 16
Bevan/Sivesind: Feb. 9 & 15
