An emotionally powerful and intimate musical sprinkled with humor, The Last Five Years tells the bittersweet tale of a brief marriage between two young artists. The storytelling is non-linear: Cathy, a struggling actor, starts her tale at the end of the marriage, working backwards through the timeline. Jamie, a literary prodigy, begins his at the onset of the relationship. The two narratives intersect on their wedding day before diverging again to arrive at the beginning, and end, of their five years together. With music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, this nearly sung-through musical has captivated audiences and critics, earning a Drama Desk Award (music and lyrics), a film adaptation, and productions around the world.
This performance will feature real life married couple and Footlight regulars Rebecca Weatherby and Michael Okas!
