There are always at least two sides to every story. In Jason Robert Brown’s musical The Last Five Years, the audience get the “his” and “her” perspectives of a relationship. But there is a twist. One is told forwards, while one is told backwards with the characters meeting in the middle. It is a funny, charming, heartwarming, heartbreaking look at life, love and loss. Jamie is a rising novelist and Cathy is a struggling actress. The challenges of their two careers add a layer to the complexities of their relationship.
