In the spirit of WaterTower Theatre's mission to build community through fostering empathy and dialogue, WaterTower announced its new community engagement programming, aptly titled Intersections. This programming is constantly exploring where our artistic work intersects with our larger community.
Intersections has two primary objectives: The first is focused on providing our audience members a deeper look into the artistic work on our stages, offering more context and making our work even more relevant in the lives of our audience. The second is cultivating authentic artistic exchanges across the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, with the belief that the themes and human stories we put on our stages will resonate throughout the community.
About The Last Five Years:
Jamie and Cathy are two 20-something artists living in New York City. Five years ago their relationship began, but today it's over. Now, both of them make the decision to look back, each from a unique perspective, on the last five years to reflect on and relive the beginning, the end, and everything in between. The award-winning musical The Last Five Years is a touching and sympathetic tale of love, loss, and timing.
