The Last Five Years


Purple l5y square

This modern musical ingeniously chronicles the five year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up and from break-up to meeting.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The show's unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

Written and Composed by Jason Robert Brown.

Originally Produced for the New York stage by Arielle Tepper and Marty Bell. Originally Produced by Northlight Theatre Chicago, IL

Starring Ashleigh Mackness and Josh Rettie. Directed by Joe Plumb with Musical Direction by Tony Careless and Rosie Hayward.
