Off-Broadway Musical: “The Last Five Years”

7:30pm – 9:30pm
¥4,800 (advance sales)

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically; the two characters only meet once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.

This production will be performed in both English and Japanese. Supertitles will be provided for both languages.

Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, was named one of TIME Magazine’s ten best shows of 2001. A testament to the show’s longevity, and spurred by the show’s regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.
