SYNOPSIS: THE LAST FIVE YEARS
Two young and ambitious New Yorkers. Cathy is an actor. Jamie is a writer. They fall in love and dive head first into a relationship. What could possibly go wrong?
Brilliantly funny, playful and tender, THE LAST FIVE YEARS chronicles the couple’s passionate romance from both perspectives: Jamie from the beginning with all the optimism of young love, looking to the future; Cathy with the hurt and disappointment of its end, looking backwards. Somewhere in between their story overlaps.
Written and composed by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, THE LAST FIVE YEARS has developed a cult following worldwide with its extraordinary ability to express universal feelings of love and heartbreak into a deeply affecting and intimate musical. With a beautiful, witty and emotionally powerful score that will hook you from the first note, this new production features the incomparable talents of Elise McCann as Cathy (Miss Honey – MATILDA THE MUSICAL) and Christian Charisiou (Hayes Theatre’s CRY BABY).
At once uplifting, heart-wrenching and honest, THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a soaring musical journey that will sweep you up and take you along for the ride. Don’t miss it.
