Second Stage Theatre presents the off-Broadway revival of Jason Robert Brown's musical.
Comments from published critics
‘‘I can’t think of any better way to celebrate the arrival of spring than by spending 90 exhilarating minutes with ‘The Last Five Years,’ Jason Robert Brown’s giddily sorrowful eulogy for a brief marriage.’’
‘‘The production, directed this time by the composer-author himself, remains an engaging chamber musical infused with intimate, emotionally perceptive, nonstop songs in which the woman tells their story backward in time from the breakup and the guy tells his side from the smitten beginning.’’
‘‘[Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott's] big shoes are filled capably this time around by Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe as Jamie Wellerstein and Cathy Hiatt, the novelist and actress whose last kiss is the show’s striking first image.’’
