Rehearsals started this week for Third Avenue PlayWorks’ (TAP) next production, The Last Five Years: Jason Robert Brown’s modern masterpiece and emotional tour de force told through 14 songs.
The musical features an unconventional structure: Jamie (played by Collin O’Connor) tells the story in forward chronological order; Cathy (Allie Babich) tells it in reverse; and they meet once as they pass by each other in the middle of the timeline.
The Last Five Years will run Aug. 7 – Sept. 11: Wednesday-Saturday, 7:30 pm, and Sunday, 2 pm. A pay-what-you-will preview is planned for Aug. 7, a ticketed final preview for Aug. 10, and opening night for Aug. 11.
