The Last Five Years Jul 13 - Aug 12, 2018  
The Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater and Children's Theater The Last Five Years
 
Before it became the feature film starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan, The Last Five Years began as a stirring stage musical that was hailed as one of the 10 best shows of 2001 by TIME magazine. Told through inventive and heartrending songs, The Last Five Years is a two-person show that navigates the ups and downs of a marriage. There is, however, a twist: The man relives the relationship from beginning to end, while the woman relates their story in reverse. The two characters' emotional timelines converge only once -- at their wedding in the middle of the show. Written by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown (Parade), this is the story of a couple's five-year relationship, from the thrilling pangs of new love to their painful final separation. The intimate musical is playing at the Washington County Playhouse Dinner Theater and Children's Theater in Hagerstown.
