last five years Merchant of Venice mock


The Last Five Years is an intimate and powerful musical with book, music & lyrics by Jason Robert Brown. Two young New Yorkers, Jamie and Cathy, meet, fall in love and fall apart over the course of five years. Unconventional in its telling, The Last Five Years starts with Cathy, an actress, telling her side of this tumultuous love story from end to beginning. At the same time Jamie, a writer, shares his perspective from beginning to end. Within the show the two characters are present face-to-face only once, at their proposal and wedding.

Full of passion, laughter and tears, The Last Five Years will be directed by Pam Cardell with music direction by R. MacKenzie Lewis.

Performances will be in the Sponberg Theatre on June 3, 4, 10, 11 at 7pm and June 5 & 12 at 2pm. Recommended for ages 16+.
