Photo Flash: THE LAST FIVE YEARS At Cupcake Studios In North Hollywood

Before it became a feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by Time magazine.

Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ins and outs - and beginning and ending - of a marriage. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this Drama Desk Award winner is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. There is, however, a twist: The man retells the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse.

The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once - at their wedding in the middle of the show. See this bittersweet song cycle at North Hollywood's Cupcake Theater.

Interview: Peter Noone Talks Touring with Hermans Hermits Photo
Herman's Hermits featuring lead singer Peter Noone formed in Manchester in 1964 and then took the world by storm during the Beatles-inspired British Invasion era. The group's success continues internationally, with the group touring to entertain not only fans from the 1960s but their children and grandchildren as well. So when I heard Herman's Hermits was set to appear at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills on January 27, I decided to speak with Peter about the group's beginning and how life on the road has kept the band going for so many years.
