The Last Five Years

The Last Five Years

Jamie and Cathy used to be in love, but now their marriage is over and they’re trying to figure out where it all went wrong …

The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical by Jason Robert Brown about two New Yorkers in their 20s who fall in and out of love over the course of five years.

In a fresh take on the “he said/she said” structure, Jamie tells his story in chronological order while Cathy shares hers in reverse.

Their stories intersect only once during the show, at their wedding, making for a compelling and voyeuristic viewing experience as audiences witness Jamie and Cathy’s relationship from two different perspectives.

Director Darren Yap brings his trademark sensibility for heartfelt storytelling and rich production values to The Last Five Years, a staple of modern musical theatre since it premiered in 2001.

The Last Five Years will play at La Boite from May 30 to June 18. Grab your tickets to this scintillating show at the La Boite website
