«The Last 5 Years» is a musical by Jason Robert Brown that explores a five-year relationship between Jamie Wellerstein, a rising novelist, and Cathy Hiatt, a struggling actress over the course of 5 years, moving both chronologically forward and backwards.
This particular production features a recast of the character Cathy Hiatt with a cis-male actor as a way to navigate the hetero-normative story through a queer lens.
The production is free to the public with a suggested $5 donation at the door. All proceeds from the production will benefit BAGLY, a local Boston non-profit that fosters safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youths.
