Her story starts at the end of their relationship; his story begins on the day they meet. A stunningly provocative piece exploring the cause and effect of love, ambition and regret.

Tony-Award winning composer Jason Robert Brown’s fresh and contemporary musical The Last 5 Years presents an intimate look at Jamie and Cathy, two young people who fall in love, get married, and grow apart over the course of five years.

Funny and uplifting, the show captures some of the most heartbreaking and universally felt moments of modern romance, as two people’s powerful love for one another struggles to overcome their differences and divergent dreams.
