The Last 5 Years

By Jason Robert Brown

Directed by Brett J. Frazier

Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner is 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 Armory production will be a concert staging and will feature the full orchestration as written by Brown. Musicians will be visible on stage and audiences will hear this show as it was intended to be heard. This is a limited engagement one-weekend run with just three performances and is not to be missed!

The Last 5 Years is a SHOW ONLY production with no dinner service. Get your tickets at or by calling the box office at 1-800-838-3006!
