Jason Robert Brown’s contemporary musical tells the emotionally powerful story of two 20-something New Yorkers who dive head first into a marriage fueled by the optimism that comes with finding “the one” 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. In a city where professional and personal passions collide and only the strongest relationships survive, navigating the waters of love and matrimony can sometimes prove too much. Funny, honest, and intimate, with an exuberantly romantic score, The Last Five Years takes a bold look at one young couple’s hope that love endures the test of time. Adam Berry (Peregrine’s RENT and Jesus Christ Superstar) and Kristen Luzi (Peregrine’s RENT; Hamlet) star in this emotionally entrancing and vocally stunning production to wrap up Peregrine Theatre Ensemble’s 2014 summer season.
