Rising Arts Productions, returns to Wollongong off the heels of their sold-out, extended season of Heathers the Musical brings a cult favourite musical to life: The Last Five Years.
Honest, moving and heart-breaking, this modern musical chronicles the five-year life of a marriage of two young New Yorkers. Featuring an unconventional structure, The Last Five Years explores romance from two perspectives: from the hurt and disappointment of the relationship’s end through to its beginnings from Cathy while Jamie’s perspective is chronological and follows the story from hopeful young love that slowly fades. The narrative overlaps only once … for a fleeting moment.
This show is a Drama Desk winner and Off-Broadway success written and composed by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown. The Last Five Years’ musical score is beautiful, tragic and hilarious; earning this emotionally powerful and intimate musical worldwide acclaim.
This new community production features two separate casts, each exploring Brown’s work in their own unique ways. Providing two riveting and raw interpretations of romance gone awry, capturing audiences’ hearts from the first note.
