SYNOPSIS

 

"Will you share your life with me, for the next ten minutes?"

 

A fresh and contemporary musical from Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years is the story of the rise and fall of a young couple’s relationship told from both sides. Her story starts at the end of their relationship while his begins on the day they met.
