The Last Five Years​

The Last Five Years​'s poster

Jason Robert Brown’s emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two young people in their twenties who fall in and out of love over the course of five years will hit the stage at The Gardens Theatre in KL, 25 - 27 September 2014. 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.! !

The Wall Street Journal describes it as “…smart, witty, moving, musically complex…”, ! Variety magazine remarked, “… (it is) a score that is replete with infectious tunes…”, ! TIME magazine hailed it as one of the top shows of 2001 and remarked “…[Jason Robert Brown] turns a modest, 80-minute, two-character musical into a richly satisfying emotional journey.”, ! and New York magazine hailed it as “Jaw-dropping! A gem of a show from Jason Robert Brown.”!

This production will see a live band bringing this magical score to life as well as multi-media designs to enhance the scenes. What makes this production so compelling and exciting will be the first-time pairing of two of Malaysia’s most accomplished musical theatre performers, Peter Ong and Nadia Aqilah. Under the music direction of Nish Tham and the direction of award-winning director Nell Ng, this production will be pulling at your heart strings as the two lovers live through their roller-coaster five year journey.
