A Musical by Jason Robert Brown Presented by Shakespeare & Friends - Directed by Catherine Gillet

Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm, and Sunday at 3:00 pm, June 13-16 at Tryon Fine Arts Center Pavilion.

Catch a Star! Finishing up their National Broadway Tour of Pretty Woman, Bethany McDonald and local favorite Chase Wolfe lead the next production from Shakespeare & Friends — the much-loved and popular musical The Last Five Years.


The Last Five Years, A musical by Jason Robert Brown, is a recipient of a Drama Desk, Lucille Lortel and Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Musical, explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two young New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy, the woman, telling her story backwards while Jamie, the man, tells his story chronologically.

The inventive musical style draws on a number of musical genres, including pop, jazz, classical, Klezmer, Latin, Blues, Rock, and Folk.
