About this show

From first date to final good-bye, The Last Five Years chronicles the highs and lows of modern marriage in an intimate, honest and richly moving musical portrait. Through the course of 14 songs, rising novelist Jamie and struggling actress Cathy separately tell their own account of their five-year relationship. From the whimsical optimism of Jamie's "Shiksa Goddess" to Cathy's crushingly vulnerable "Still Hurting," the young lovers explore their emotionally complex romance through beautifully haunting music and original, ingenious lyrics.
