The Last 5 Years — which features book, music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown — charts the rise and fall of the marriage between Kathy and Jamie over a period of five years. The conceit of The Last 5 Years has the woman beginning her story at the end of the relationship and working her way back, while Jamie's story starts from the first date and works forward. They sing together only once, in the middle of the play, at their wedding. Song titles include "Still Hurting," "A Summer in Ohio," "The Next Ten Minutes," "I Can Do Better Than That," "Nobody Needs to Know" and "Goodbye Until Tomorrow."
