The Last Five Years
February 8 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
The Hoogland Center for the Arts is pleased to present Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner, The Last Five Years, on February 1-3 and 8-10 in Theatre 3 at the Hoogland.
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers 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 new production, directed by Craig Williams II, will feature Damien Kaplan and Mary Kate Smith. The orchestra will be led by Cory Brown. The Last 5 Years is sponsored in part by Jill Gum Photography.
