The Last 5 Years
December 5, 2018 @ 8:00 PM - December 8, 2018 @ 8:00 PM$10 – $20
December 5 – 8, 2018
The Last 5 Years by Tony award-winning composer and lyricist Jason Robert Brown, is a musical deconstruction of a love affair and a marriage taking place over a five-year period. Jamie Wellerstein is a young, talented up-and-coming Jewish novelist who falls in love with Cathy Hiatt, a “Shiksa Goddess” struggling actress. Their story is told almost entirely through songs using an inter-cutting time line device; all of Cathy’s songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time to the beginning of their love affair, while Jamie’s songs start at the beginning of their affair and move forward to the end of their marriage. They meet in the centre when Jamie proposes.
The Last 5 Years was adapted into a 2014 film starring Anna Kendrick as Cathy and Jeremy Jordan as Jamie.
