The Last Five Years' composer Jason Robert Brown demonstates a passage in the score for Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott, who recorded the musical for Sh-K-Boom Records March 11. The Last Five Years will be released on CD April 16.

The Last Five Years, directed by Daisy Prince, charts the rise and fall of a marriage of a "nice Jewish boy" and a girl in New York City, over five years and from different points of view. The conceit of The Last Five Years has the woman, Cathy, a musical theatre actress, beginning her story at the end of the relationship and working her way back, and Jamie, a novelist, starting from the first date and working forward. They sing together only once, in the middle of the play, at their wedding.
