Second Star Theatre Presents: "The Last 5 Years"

Second Star Theatre Company proudly invites you to their inaugural production of Jason Robert Brown's "The Last 5 Years." This heart-wrenching tale is perfectly brought to life through its beautiful music, intimate moments, and an emotional storyline that will take you on a roller-coaster of feelings (bring tissues, ladies and gents). 

The story explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. The show uses a form of storytelling in which Cathy's story is told in reverse chronological order (beginning the show at the end of the marriage), and Jamie's is told in chronological order (starting just after the couple have first met). 

And to bump up the emotion even higher, we've cast not one but TWO pairs of actors to live out this story...double the emotion, in FOUR different versions of this iconic story.
