Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk winner, “The Last Five Years”, has been translated into a handful of languages and 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.

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.

Matt Mlynarski directs the show; Eric Barchiesi is Music Director; Brooke Echnat is Assistant Director; Bekah Little is Stage Manager. Cast features Victoria Buchtan as Cathy and Sam Brooks as Jamie. The orchestra includes Eric Barchiesi, Piano; Larissa Maple, Violin; Sean McMasters, Guitar; Bob Patterson, Bass.
