The Last Five Years
December 5 - 30, 2012
By Jason Robert Brown
The Last Five Years is a contemporary song-cycle musical that ingeniously chronicles the five year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up... or from break-up to meeting, depending on how you look at it. The story, told in the exuberant and heart-rending songs of award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, explores the story of a five-year marriage between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress, from intense love to a final, painful separation. However, there’s an intriguing twist: Jamie lives the five years from beginning to end, while Cathy lives the five years backward, from end to beginning. Based on the author’s personal story, this musical from the composer of Songs From A New World, will be an artistic treat for South Florida audiences.
