Current Season

Peregrine Theatre Ensemble

"The Last 5 Years" by Jason Robert Brown

Sep 01 - Sep 02 at 7:30 pm

 

Last 5 Years
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.
Approximate Run Time: 90 minutes without an Intermission   Tickets are Tier 1: $38.75 Tier 2: $28.75

Begins May 5

With generous support from the Kaplan Foundation, Cotuit Center for the Arts announces a new collaboration designed to workshop four original plays by four local playwrights over the course of one year.  Theater partners include Cotuit Center for the Arts, Harwich Junior Theatre, Provincetown Theater, and Woods Hole Theater Company. Each work will be presented in staged readings four times, once each season over the course of a year, in four venues from the upper Cape to the lower Cape, reaching four different audiences.  The partners each invited a local playwright and asked that they pen a new full length play for up to six actors. Readings will take place in the four theaters simultaneously, the first with each playwright in the “home” of their presenter, then rotating between the four venues. Dates of the performances are scheduled for May 5, August 4, November 3, 2014; and February 2, 2015 (Dates subject to change).  A festival of all four plays will be scheduled at the completion of the cycle. Featured playwrights are Bronwen Prosser (Cotuit Center for the Arts), Susan Kosoff (Harwich Junior Theatre),  Candace Perry (Provincetown Theater) and Joe Richards (Woods Hole Theater Company).  The program is funded by generous support from the Kaplan Foundation. Admission is free.  More details and exact show times coming soon.
