With music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown and a touching and relatable storyline, "The Last Five Years" is a show that is sure to resonate with audiences of all ages.
This production of "The Last Five Years" was last attempted in September 2022 but was not cast due to talent not being available. The Attic Theatrical is confident that the right talent is available this time and is eager to bring this production to the stage.

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.
The Attic Theatrical is presenting The Last Five Years at Central Coast Music Factory Sat, 27th May to Sun, 4th June '23
