The Last Five Years

musical

Jason Robert Brown’s award-winning musical, THE LAST FIVE YEARS, returns to London’s West End for the first time in over ten years, after two sensational sell-out seasons at Southwark Playhouse, and an internationally streamed performance watched by audiences worldwide. THE LAST FIVE YEARS comes to the Vaudeville Theatre for a strictly limited 4-week season.

Jonathan O’Boyle’s bold new production sees the actor-musicians playing the piano, ukulele and guitar five throughout the show, adding an additional musical narrative to the story and a unique magic to Brown’s exquisite songs.

What is The Last Five Years about?

The musical’s unconventional structure unfolds as Cathy (Molly Lynch) tells her story in reverse, from the end of their turbulent relationship, whilst Jamie (Oli Higginson) tells his story chronologically from the spark of their initial meeting. The two characters meet only once, at their wedding in the middle of the show.
