The Last Five Years: Bittersweet Musical About Marriage & Memory

The Last Five Years | The Geary Theater
Music & Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
A musical in concert, starring Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe

From the Tony Award–winning composer of Parade and Honeymoon in Vegas, Jason Robert Brown, comes the powerful and intimate musical, The Last Five Years, in concert for a special musical event. The presentation features Betsy Wolfe (star of A.C.T.'s Tales of the City, Broadway's The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Bullets Over Broadway) and Adam Kantor (Broadway's RENT and Next to Normal), the critically acclaimed original cast of the 2013 production at New York's Second Stage Theatre.

The Last Five Years tells the powerful story of Cathy and Jamie, two twenty-something New Yorkers who dive headfirst into a marriage fueled by the optimism that comes from finding "the one." But in a city where professional and personal passions collide and only the strongest relationships survive, navigating the waters of love and matrimony can sometimes prove to be daunting. Sung from their individual points of view, Cathy's journey is told from ending to beginning, and Jamie's from beginning to end. Funny, honest, and intimate, and with an exuberantly romantic score, The Last Five Years takes a bold look at one young couple's hope that love endures the test of time.

V.I.P. tickets are available for the Saturday 8 p.m. performance and include complimentary pre-show champagne and a special post-show dessert reception with the cast.

"A stunning score. From the melancholy music-box-style opening notes to the ironically upbeat finale, this is far and away [Jason Robert Brown's] finest work."Entertainment Weekly

"A relentlessly revealing gem of a show...with jaw-dropping songs. Beautifully performed by Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor, who fill every daredevil leap and riff with torrents of feeling."

★★★★ "Graceful, gripping and break-your-heart beautiful. The Last Five Years burrows into your skin by virtue of its very theatricality. Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor are simply irresistible! It's impossible not to swoon!"New York Daily News

"One of the top 10 productions of 2013!"Associated Press
