The Last Five Years

A musical love story by Jason Robert Brown • Streaming April 23 – May 23, 2021

Enjoy the magic of theatre anywhere you can access the internet.  Rent the pre-recorded, fully staged production and stream it right to your computer, smartphone, or tablet.

While we are not performing in person yet, Broadway Rose is thrilled to produce this musical and make it available to you in your home during this time of social isolation. Enjoy an evening of entertainment and help keep our staff and artists working during this crisis.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical sprinkled with humor, The Last Five Years tells the bittersweet tale of a brief marriage between two young artists. The storytelling is non-linear: Cathy, a struggling actor, starts her tale at the end of the marriage, working backwards through the timeline. Jamie, a literary prodigy, begins his at the onset of the relationship. The two narratives intersect on their wedding day before diverging again to arrive at the beginning, and end, of their five years together. With music and lyrics by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, this nearly sung-through musical has captivated audiences and critics, earning a Drama Desk Award (music and lyrics), a film adaptation, and productions around the world.

Music Direction by BRIAN MICHAEL

Written and Composed by JASON ROBERT BROWN

Originally Produced for the New York stage by Arielle Tepper and Marty Bell
Originally Produced by Northlight Theatre Chicago, IL

Kailey Rhodes and Jeff Rosick in The Last Five YearsThe latest from Broadway Rose is a cozy fit for your living room (‘The Last Five Years’ review)
by Lee Williams
The Oregonian, Apr. 26, 2021
Rosick admirably fuses Jamie’s egoism, charm and ambition. Rhodes, working back from anger to joy, uncovers a confidence and drive that’s nearly extinguished in Cathy when we meet her. Both dive heart-first into Brown’s affecting score.

Jeff Rosick in The Last Five YearsTheater: 5 years, 1 mural, 1 wag
by Bob Hicks
ArtsWatch, Apr. 26, 2021
It takes a good singer to pull these sometimes astringent roles off, and that’s part of the attraction: It’s a challenge. Rhodes and Rosick rise to it, Rosick in particular, with a strong baritone that can sell a song without overselling it. Read more.
