Due to extremely high ticket demand, Second Stage Theatre's production of Jason Robert Brown's musical, The Last Five Years, has been extended a second time for an additional two weeks through Sunday, May 12. The highly anticipated revival will officially open on April 2.
Starring Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe, 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 be performed at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre (305 West 43rd street). Tickets are available at www.2ST.com or by calling the box office at 212-246-4422.
Jason Robert Brown's contemporary 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.
THE LAST FIVE YEARS features scenic design by Derek McLane, costume design by Emily Rebholz, lighting design by Jeff Croiter, and sound design by Jon Weston. The musical director is Thomas Murray.
