The Last Five Years

Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown

2007 GPAC, Geelong

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties: Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist on the brink of wild success, are 20-somethings who meet, fall in love, marry, and divorce over the span of five years.  Cathy tells the story from the end of their marriage; Jamie begins from when they first meet.  As the musical unfolds, Cathy moves backward in time to the beginning of the relationship as Jamie moves toward the end; they meet only once, in the middle, at their wedding.
