A time-bending love story returnsAward-winning musical The Last Five Years returns to the West End for the first time in over a decade this Autumn. The time-bending show, which celebrated two hit seasons at Southwark Playhouse and online in 2020, transfers to the Vaudeville Theatre.
The Last Five Years is a unique love story, unfolding from beginning to end - and end to beginning. Jamie’s testimony starts with the thrilling sparks of his relationship with Cathy, whilst Cathy rewinds from the breakdown.
With the pair's timelines colliding at their wedding, this witty, turbulent and romantic story is recounted on stage with actor-musicians performing Jason Robert Brown's bittersweet songs - including "Goodbye Until Tomorrow" and "I Can Do Better Than That" - live.
Director Jonathan O'Boyle's revival features Oli Higginson as Jamie and Molly Lynch as Cathy, both reprising their roles from Southwark Playhouse.
This exciting revival of an Off-Broadway hit earned rave reviews and kept audiences gripped during lockdown. Don’t miss out on The Last Five Years tickets when it opens for strictly limited season on 17 September 2021.
