Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years opens at the St James Theatre tomorrow night (Wednesday 2nd December) and we are pleased to bring you these great first look images of the production which stars Samantha Barks and Jonathan Bailey and is directed by Jason Robert Brown. The Last Five Years tickets can be purchased here.
The production has proven so popular that it has been extended by a week ahead of its opening night and will now play until Saturday 3 December 2016.
The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical telling the story of Jamie and Cathy, two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. As aspiring author Jamie gets the book deal of his dreams, actress Cathy struggles to get work and make sense of the way her career has turned out. Can a couple once united by their dreams stay connected as their paths begin to divide? Known for its unique structure, The Last Five Years sees their stories told in opposite directions; Jamie moving forwards and Cathy backwards through their relationship, meeting only briefly for a moment in time as their stories cross.
