Portland Center Stage: The Last Five Years
“I’ve been waiting for someone…
I think I could be in love with someone.”
An emotionally powerful and intimate musical about two New Yorkers in their twenties who fall in love. The title is not only a reference to their relationship, but also a call to the structure of the play itself, with the element of time folding in on itself and echoing the sometimes disorienting quality of love. Cathy tells her story of the courtship backwards, while Jamie tells his story chronologically; will these two manage to hold on to their prize?
The Last Five Years is a charming and bittersweet song cycle, and was a Drama Desk Award winner. It is our first musical offering in the Studio since Crazy Enough. Call 503-445-3700 for dates, times and ticket information.
