2012's sell-out, award-winning, and critically-acclaimed Broadway smash-hit musical, THE LAST 5 YEARS, comes to the beautiful and newly-renovated Epstein Theatre this June!
Directed, designed by, and starring Liverpool actors Helen Carter and Stephen Fletcher, with Musical Direction by Nick Phillips, and written by Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown (Songs fror a New World and Parade), THE LAST FIVE YEARS is a heartbreaking and hilarious musical about two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years together.
Cathy is a vivacious struggling actress, and Jamie a hotshot up-and-coming novelist. In this clever way of story-telling, Cathy's story begins at the end of their relationship, and Jamie's starts at the beginning.
Watch their relationship from tragic end to hopeful beginning and hopeful beginning to tragic end, as Jamie and Cathy share their separate tale of their last five years together.
