The Last 5 Years, Brings Superb Musical Performance to the stage of ACT I

I have to admit, as I went to watch "The Last 5 Years" at the Palace during one of the dress rehearsals I knew it was going to be a tough one to see for me. I went in the door gritting my teeth and hoping to manage to pull off a cool demeanor as I prepared to watch the show. A very well written piece by Jason Robert Brown about a couple and their struggles in marriage.

Review for Act I: The Last 5 Years

A review by: Sophia DilleyGoing into The Last Five Years by Jason Robert Brown I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know what the plot was, except that the rating was more mature for some adult themes and language. What I learned is that this is a story of a five year relationship between Catherine (Cathy) Hiatt and Jamie (Jamie) Wellerstein, told from two perspectives; Jamie’s story starts at the beginning and works toward the end while Cathy tells the story starting at the end and working backwards toward the beginning.

The Last 5 Years to perform at Vinton Palace

His going forward and hers going backward.Performance dates for The Last Five Years are scheduled for February 28th and 29th at 7PM and March 1st at 2 PM.
