The Last Five Years, by Jason Robert Brown
Pathos and Laughter
Friday, July 8, 2005
5.0
The Last Five Years is tremendously character driven. Andy and Shelley brought both characters to life with their acting and singing talents. I had been told that it was hard to follow but excellent staging-- including the moving clocks-- made it easy. The music was really good. The mostly very young musicians deserve great praise. I was moved to tears by the sadness of both characters at the divorce. Amazingly I also misted up seeing Cathy's character so innocently happy at the end/beginning because we know all the in between. There was also several times I laughed out loud. Both Andy and Shelley have good comedic bents. I know personally that Andy has picked Shelley to be the lead in 2 of his plays now. They have a good chemistry and I found them both engaging and very talented. The night I saw it Andy seemed a tad forced in his first numbers but excelled as he aged. Shelley seemed natural throughout and had great vocal control over this demanding music.
