Rising Arts Productions returns to Wollongong off the heels of their sold-out, extended season of Heathers the Musical to bring yet another 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 their romance from both perspectives: Cathy from the hurt and disappointment of the relationships end through to its beginnings; Jamie chronologically, inspired by young love and hopeful for the future. Overlapping only once in a fleeting moment.
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 equally beautiful, tragic and hilarious; earning this emotionally powerful and intimate musical worldwide acclaim. This new production features two separate casts, exploring Brown’s work in their own unique way that provides two rivetingly raw interpretations of this romance gone awry that will capture audiences’ hearts from the first note.
