For the first time in its original English language in Switzerland, The Last Five Years is Jason Robert Brown’s intimate story of Cathy, a struggling actress, and Jamie, a budding novelist on the brink of success. They are youngsters in New York and this is the tale of their relationship over the span of five years. Cathy tells her story from the end; Jamie begins from when they first meet. As the musical unfolds, Cathy moves backward in time to the beginning of the relationship as Jamie moves toward the end; they meet only once, in the middle. Brown’s funny, poignant, and devastatingly honest production has enraptured audiences around the world with its spellbinding and emotional score and libretto.
