About this show

The Last Five Years, a Drama Desk Award winner for Best Music and Best Lyrics, is an autobiographical love story of a five-year relationship, written by acclaimed lyricist and composer Jason Robert Brown. It tells the story of Jamie, a Jewish writer with a career on the rise, who falls in love with Cathy, an actress of Christian background, who also is getting her career off the ground. The two tell the tale of their relationship in turn: Cathy in backwards chronological order beginning with the end of their marriage, and Jamie chronologically, beginning with the "goodbye" of their first date.
