Story

What is the Story of The Last Five Years?
Jason Robert Brown’s popular 2001 musical The Last Five Years tells the story of two twenty-somethings who fall in love—and out of it again—over the course of a five year relationship. Jamie, an up-and-coming writer, struggles to balance his sudden success with his increasingly tumultuous love life, while Cathy, an aspiring actress, deals with the frustrations of her own stalled career while watching her husband from the sidelines. Jamie tells his side of the tale in chronological order, while Cathy relives the relationship backwards, with both stories intersecting in the middle, on their wedding day. The musical features memorable songs “Still Hurting,” “Shiksa Goddess,” “The Next Ten Minutes,” “Goodbye Until Tomorrow” and more.

Critics' Reviews

"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."

Review by Jeremy Gerard from Bloomberg

"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."

Review by Linda Winer from Newsday
