The Attic Theatrical is proud to announce the production of "The Last 5 Years," a musical written and composed by Jason Robert Brown. The production, directed by Rob and Nat Logan, will take to the stage in late May, providing audiences with an unforgettable theatrical experience.
"The Last 5 Years" is a contemporary musical that tells the story of the five-year relationship between Jamie and Cathy, two New York City-based artists who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. The unique structure of the show allows audiences to see the story from both perspectives, with Cathy's story told in reverse chronological order and Jamie's story told in chronological order.
"We are so excited to bring this beautiful musical to the stage" said Rob Logan, co-director. "We are now looking for our Jamie and Cathy. This show is unique in its presentation as a traditional 2 person cast show, however, ours is a little different. Our production will expand with the addition of four technical dancers. We really want to explore the depth of Jamie and Cathy's relationship by telling their story through the music of of Jason Robert Brown, accompanied by dance."
The production will feature a talented cast of local actors and dancers with music direction by Kim Gilbert and choreography by Danny-Elle Henderson.
"The Last 5 Years" will be performed at Central Coast Music Factory with performances starting on 27th May with 6 shows running through to 4th June. Ticketing detail will be announced soon. Don't miss this opportunity to experience the powerful storytelling and beautiful music of "The Last 5 Years." #TheLast5Years

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.
The Attic Theatrical's vision for the show includes technical dancers that represent the “memories” of both Cathy and Jamie. These dancers will be performing partner work, lifts in mostly lyrical/contemporary styles.
