THE last five years

Held over from our successful run in June, The Last Five Years is an intimate and powerful musical with book, music & lyrics by Jason Robert Brown.

Jamie and Cathy, two young New Yorkers 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 while Jamie, a writer, shares his 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 is directed by Pam Cardell with music direction by R. MacKenzie Lewis. Performances will be in the Sponberg Theatre on September 9 & 10 at 7pm and September 11 at 2pm. Recommended for ages 16+.
