Adam Kantor (Rent) and Betsy Wolfe (The Mystery of Edwin Drood) will co-star in the highly anticipated revival of Jason Robert Brown's musical The Last Five Years at Second Stage Theatre. The beloved two-character musical, which has received more than 500 regional productions and 3,000 performances around the world, is returning to New York City after eleven years in an all-new staging directed by MR. Brown. The Last Five Years will begin previews on Thursday, March 7 at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre (305 West 43rd street). Opening night is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2 at 7pm.

"It means so much to me to be able to bring The Last Five Years back to New York after eleven years, especially since New York is such an important character in it. In so many ways, it feels like coming home," says composer/lyricist/director Jason Robert Brown. "When we did the show in 2002, we had two amazing young performers who were just then on the verge of explosive careers in the theater; I think that we've got the same situation with Adam and Betsy. I've been watching them for so long, and am so excited to get them at this amazing moment in their lives as artists. I'm looking forward to rehearsing with them and then watching them bring these two characters to a new and fresh life."
