Out of Box Theatre will open their 2016-2017 season with the acclaimed musical The Last Five Years written by Jason Robert Brown. Named one of Time Magazine’s 10 best shows of 2001, The Last Five Years has retained its popularity, with an Off-Broadway revival in 2013 and a film adaptation released in 2014. Veterans of the Out of Box stage, Lauren Rosenzweig and Stephen DeVillers star as Cathy and Jamie in this emotionally powerful and intimate musical.

The show's unconventional structure bends time around the duo, chronicling their relationship from two perspectives at once. Over the course of five years, the two New Yorkers fall in and out of love. While Jamie tells his story chronologically, time for Cathy moves backward. They meet in the middle, at their wedding. Out of Box Theatre is proud to support Melissa Simmons in her professional directorial debut, in conjunction with Music Director Annie Cook.
