Norbert Leo Butz and Sherie Rene Scott recorded the CD of Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years March 11 for release April 16 on Sh-K-Boom Records.

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.
