How to Book Your Seat

The Last Five Years has been translated into a handful of languages and was named one of TIME Magazine‘s ten best shows of 2001. A film adaptation was released in 2014, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan.

An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years, the show’s unconventional structure consists of Cathy (the woman) telling her story backwards while Jamie (the man) tells his story chronologically. The two characters only meet once at their wedding in the middle of the show.
