The Last Five Years

8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


The-Last-5-Years-4x4To help celebrate the start of Short North Stage’s fifth year, we present the contemporary hit musical The Last Five Years. A cult favorite, especially among young audiences, this musical by Robert Jason Brown tells the story of a twenty-something novelist Jamie Wellerstein and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress. The musical explores their five-year relationship through a novel device: Cathy’s story is told in the reverse chronological order—beginning at the end of their marriage—while Jamie’s begins just after they’ve met. The characters never directly interact except for a wedding song in the middle, when their timelines intersect. Performances Thursday through Saturday evenings at 8 p.m and matinees on Saturdays and Sundays at 3 p.m.  Click Here for Tickets
