THE LAST FIVE YEARS Opens this Weekend at Aux Dog Theatre Nob Hill
Jamie is a young, ambitious Jewish writer who wants a non-Jewish girlfriend.
Cathy is a young, ambitious actress who is also insecure.
Together they make the perfect couple. But will love survive ambition and fame?
Remember the thrill of falling in love?
Tony Award winning writer and composer Jason Robert Brown does. He captures Jamie and Cathy's romance in an unforgettable score filled with lush, heart-felt songs and musical variety that won two Drama Desk Awards.
The format of this musical is unique in that Jamie's story moves forward in time while Cathy's story moves backwards. They only "meet" in the middle when they get married. But this show tells a universal story. THE LAST FIVE YEARS is about love found and lost, a mixture of hurt and hope. And who hasn't experienced this?
Chosen by TIME Magazine as a Theater Top 10 of 2001, THE LAST FIVE YEARS has been translated into numerous languages with audiences around the world thrilling to Cathy and Jamie's story, making THE LAST FIVE YEARS Brown's most successful musical.
And now it will be your favorite, too.
