The Last Five Years, Starring Max Wellman & Katy Merriman5/5/2017
Noce is proud to present a new production of Jason Robert Brown’s stunning musical, The Last Five Years. This production is particularly set up to drive the stunning score home, starring two local stalwarts who happen to be married themselves.
Jason Robert Brown’s Drama Desk winner, 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 testament to the show’s longevity, and spurred by the show’s regional popularity, The Last Five Years enjoyed an Off-Broadway revival at Second Stage in 2013. 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.
Noce will produce this show in the main stage room normally set aside for live jazz & cabaret performances. The intimate setting will feature a full pit of professional musicians, including two cellos along with violin. Tickets are on sale immediately at nocedsm.com and by calling (515)244-5399.
