The Last Five Years New Off-Broadway Cast Recording
The Last Five Years 2013 Off-Broadway cast recording – based on the hit Second Stage Theatre production created and directed by Jason Robert Brown – is out today everywhere music is sold. Get the album now on iTunes or on CD through our store.

Barnes & Noble will celebrate the release with a special in-store performance and CD signing on Monday, October 14 at 4:00 PM. The show's stars Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe will perform selections along with Jason Robert Brown. The venue is located on the Upper East Side (150 East 86th Street, between Lexington and Third Avenues). Please call (212) 369-2180 for details.

In addition, 54 Below will present the special series The Last Five Years in Concert – with Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe – from October 16 to 19 to celebrate the new album. These four shows will give audiences a chance to celebrate the musical in the intimate setting of 54 Below with the critically acclaimed performances of Betsy and Adam, along with the full band reunited from this year's hit production at Second Stage. JRB will be at the piano on October 16 -17 at 7:00 PM, with Andrew Resnick taking over on October 18-19 at 11:00 PM. The entire set of concerts will feature Gary Sieger on acoustic guitar, Randy Landau on fretless bass, Thomas Kim Carney on violin, and Summer Boggess and Mairi Dorman on cello. The cover charge ranges from $35 to $45 and there is a $25 food and beverage minimum. Please visit for additional information.

The beloved two-character musical, which has received more than 500 regional productions and 3,000 performances around the world, broke box office records for the Off-Broadway institution and ranks among the longest-running productions in the company's 34 year history. The show's enduring global popularity was also the subject of a recent article in TheNew York Times.

The new recording of The Last Five Years was produced by Jason Robert Brown with Kurt Deutsch and Stacey Mindich serving as executive producers. The 2002 Original Cast Recording of The Last Five Years – the label's first cast album – remains one of their best-selling titles. Sh-K-Boom is also producing a feature film based on the show directed by Richard LaGravenese and starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. In addition, the label has released both the Broadway and London cast recordings of Brown's 13 – The Musical, as well as his solo album Wearing Someone Else's Clothes.

Jesse Green of New York Magazine calls The Last Five Years, "A gem of a show with jaw-dropping songs beautifully performed by Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor, who fill every daredevil leap and riff with torrents of feeling. Jason Robert Brown has put together a beautiful, emotional experience." Melissa Rose Bernardo of Entertainment Weekly calls the score, "Stunning…far and away Jason Robert Brown's finest work," and Joe Dziemianowicz of the Daily News raves that the show is "graceful, gripping and break-your-heart beautiful. It's impossible not to swoon."
