The Last Five Years is a heartfelt musical about love lost and gained that will resonate with audiences of all ages, playing at La Boite’s Roundhouse Theatre from May 30 to June 18, 2022. 

The intimate and relatable piece tells the story of Cathy and Jamie, two 20-something New Yorkers who used to be giddily in love but break apart over time, dissecting their last five years for answers about how it all went wrong.

Written by Tony Award-winning playwright Jason Robert Brown, the audience bears witness to both joy and despair as the protagonists each tell their side of the story: Jamie in chronological order, Cathy recounting hers in reverse.

The two characters only intersect once, in the middle of the show at their wedding, making for a compelling and voyeuristic viewing experience.

Bringing undeniable chemistry and powerful performances to their La Boite debuts are recent Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University graduate Danielle Remulta as Cathy, and returning home to Australia after wonderful success in the UK, actor and musician Robert Tripolino as Jamie. 

The cast of two will be joined on stage by a live band as the theatre space is reimagined by highly regarded musical theatre Director Darren Yap, who brings his signature focus on heartfelt storytelling to this much-loved musical.
