Jason Robert Brown’s contemporary musical The Last Five Years tells the emotionally powerful story of two twenty-something New Yorkers who dive head first into a marriage fueled by the optimism that comes with 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 too much. Funny, honest and intimate, 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.
This beloved two-character musical, which has received more than 500 regional productions and 3,000 performances around the world, broke box office records for Second Stage Theatre and ranks among the longest-running productions in the venue’s history.
