The Last Five Years at Cygnet Theatre admin November 14, 2019 Theatre Book, Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown Directed by Rob Lutfy Courtesy of Cygnet Theatre Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), The Last Five Years is an emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over half a decade. Made up mostly of solo turns, with beautiful music and alternately humorous and heartfelt lyrics, it is only in the middle of the show that Jamie and Cathy come together as Jamie proposes and the two are wed. “CRITIC’S CHOICE!” – The San Diego Union-Tribune “a beautifully bittersweet revival” – Jim Hebert, The San Diego Union-Tribune “With compelling performances and impressive vocals by Cusimano and Williams this musical is easy to fall in love with” – ErinMarie Reiter, BroadwayWorld “If you’ve seen this unique musical before, you’ve never seen it with the depth and nuance this production teases from it. If you haven’t experienced it, you’ll appreciate Brown’s lively mix of pop, jazz, rock and folk music, and his clever and poignant lyrics.” – Pat Launer, Times of San Diego “Cusimano and Williams sound and move so well together that their performances are almost balletic.” – David Coddon, San Diego CityBeat “By shuffling freely through time, this superb musical at Cygnet Theatre finds lasting value in a brief relationship.” – Dan Letchworth, San Diego Magazine Run Time: 90 minutes, no intermission.
