The Last Five Years by Tony Award-winning composer and lyricist Jason Robert Brown is a musical deconstruction of a love affair that takes place over a five year period. Jamie Wellerstein is a young up-and-coming novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through songs using an intercutting time line device; Cathy’s songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time to the beginning of their relationship while Jamie’s songs start at the beginning and move forward to the end of their marriage.

The Last Five Years is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.MTIShows.com
