. June 1, 2016.
theaternote

Audiences everywhere are conditioned to the typical love tale; cue the meet-cute, the big fight, and eventually the happily-ever-after. But what happens when an audience is confronted with a love story in which the boy and girl almost never meet? That’s the basis for The Last Five Years, a musical by Jason Robert Brown, directed by Pam Cardell. Jamie and Cathy, two New Yorkers who tell the story of their relationship separately, appear only once together onstage during the play. Presented by EMU’s Department of Communication, Media & Theatre Arts, with musical direction by R. MacKenzie Lewis.
