THE LAST FIVE YEARS


Fra Fee (Les Miserables, Candide) and Amy Lennox (9 To 5, Legally Blonde) are set to star in Jason Robert Brown’s award-winning musical ‘The Last Five Years’ at the Lyric Theatre, Belfast from 24th June - 4th July 2015.

To book tickets call 02890 381081 or visit www.lyrictheatre.co.uk.

The Last Five Years premiered at Chicago's Northlight Theatre in 2001 and was subsequently produced at Off-Broadway's Minetta Lane Theatre in 2002. The U.K. premiere at the Menier Chocolate Factory in 2006 starred Lara Pulver and Damian Humbley, with a gala staging at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket in 2008 starring Paul Spicer and Julie Atherton.  A film adaptation starring Oscar-nominated Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan was released in the US in February 2015 and on DVD on 4th May.

The show revolves around the relationship between the young talented novelist Jamie and an aspiring actress Cathy with a clever story-telling device; all of Cathy’s songs begin at the end of their marriage and move backwards in time while Jamie’s songs start at the beginning of their affair and move forward to the end of their marriage.  They physically meet on stage only once, at their wedding

The production is directed by Stephen Whitson whose current projects include Little Women (Old Rep Theatre, Birmingham) and Elegies (Criterion Theatre, London). He is also currently the Associate Director for Cameron Mackintosh’s production of Barnum. Musical direction is by Mark McGrath.
