Jason Robert Brown’s beloved musical The Last Five Years
tells the emotionally powerful story of two twenty-something New Yorkers who dive head first into a marriage fueled by the optimism that comes with finding “the one.” But in a city where professional and personal passions collide and only the strongest relationships survive, navigating the waters of love and matrimony can sometimes prove too much. Funny, honest and intimate, with an exuberantly romantic score, The Last Five Years
takes a bold look at one young couple's hope that love endures the test of time.
This new recording preserves the Second Stage Theater Company Off-Broadway revival production and features Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor as its stars. The Last Five Years
has received more than 500 regional productions and 3,000 performances around the world, has broken box office records for the off-Broadway institution and ranks among the longest-running productions in Second Stage's 34 year history.
