TAP Musical Explores Relationship Through Time

Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years is now open – and running five days a week through Sept. 11 – at Third Avenue PlayWorks. 

The Last Five Years is an emotional tour de force in 14 songs. The musical tells the story of a five-year relationship between Cathy (played by Allie Babich) and Jamie (Collin O’Connor) in an unconventional way: Jamie tells the story in forward chronological order; Cathy tells it in reverse; and they meet once as they pass by each other in the middle of the timeline. Accompanied by an onstage band, the songs intertwine to create a beautiful story of love, heartache, growth and change.
