Jason Robert Brown's two-person song cycle, The Last Five Years, which replaced the previously announced Crimes of the Heart, began performances at Virginia's Signature Theatre April 2.
The two person musical features James Gardiner (Chess, [title of show]) and Erin Weaver (Xanadu) as Jamie and Cathy respectively.
"From first date to final goodbye," The Last Five Years, according to the Signature, "chronicles the highs and lows of modern marriage in an intimate, honest and richly moving musical portrait. Through the course of 14 songs, rising novelist Jamie and struggling actress Cathy separately tell their own account of their five-year relationship."
Here's a look at the Signature Production:
