Written by Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hyatt, a struggling actress. The story uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy's story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie's is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). The characters do not directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle as their timelines intersect.
Kendrick received a Tony Award nominations for her performance in Broadway's High Society. Her role in "Up in the Air" earned her an Oscar nomination. Her other film credits include "Camp," "Pitch Perfect," "50/50," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" and the "Twilight" series.
Jordan recently appeared on NBC's SMASH and starred on the Broadway stage in NEWSIES. He has also appeared in Broadway's Bonnie & Clyde in 2011, as well as Rock of Ages and West Side Story in 2009. He guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU in 2008 and appeared in the film Joyful Noise.
