Pittsburg Community Theatre’s

Last Five Years

first “After Dark” performance for mature audiences

This modern musical by Jason Robert Brown ingeniously chronicles the five-year life of a marriage, from meeting to break-up and from break-up to meeting.
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.A 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, it enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. 

Directed by Mary Jo Harper

Written by Jason Robert Brown
