BWW Reviews: Ocean State Theatre's THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a Tale of Two MusicalsBWW Reviews: Ocean State Theatre's THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a Tale of Two Musicals
by Robert Barossi (Rhode Island)

(2/28/2015) - Coincidentally, Ocean State Theatre Company happens to be presenting back-to-back productions which are two-person shows. The first one, The Meeting, was a serious drama depicting the fictional meeting between Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. The second one is their current production of a much different show, the musical love story, The Last Five Years. While the first one had a noticeable but minor difference in the charisma and stage presence of its two performers, the second one is an example of just how obviously wide that gap can become and just how much the difference between its two leads can impact a production.
