Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk Award winning musical, The Last Five Years, is an intimate look at the relationship between two New Yorkers; an actress and a writer, who fall in and out of love over the course of five years.
This modern, one act musical masterpiece is emotionally powerful and searingly honest with a score that has secured its status as a modern classic.
The musical’s unconventional structure pulls the audience in opposite directions with Cathy’s story unfolding in reverse, from the end of their turbulent relationship, whilst Jamie, tells his story chronologically from the spark of their initial meeting. It is a dramatic device that plays on our expectations, taking us on an emotional rollercoaster through the joyous and the tragic.
