WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Ray of Light Theatre presents The Last Five Years, a funny and uplifting story that chronicles a young couple's romance over the course of a half decade -- but with a twist. This fresh and contemporary musical ingeniously chronicles the five-year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up -- or from break-up to meeting -- depending on how you look at it. Featuring Eli Newsom and Christy McIntosh Written by Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years is an intensely personal look at the relationship between a writer and an actress told from both points of view. The show is presented in "forward time" as we follow the story of their relationship from Jamie's perspective, as Cathy relates the story in "reverse" - starting with their breakup and moving backwards in time until their first meeting at the end of the show. With beautiful music and alternately humorous and heartfelt lyrics, it is only in the middle of the show that Jamie and Cathy come together as Jamie proposes and the two are wed. Funny and uplifting, the show captures some of the most heartbreaking and universally felt moments of modern romance.
