The Last Five Years' Betsy Wolfe and Adam Kantor Perform at Barnes and Noble
The event, which also featured writer-director Brown on piano, celebrated the release of the Sh-K-Boom/Ghostlight Records cast album of the two-actor musical that arrived in stores Sept. 24.
Kantor, Wolfe and Brown performed and signed copies of the cast album.
The new recording of The Last Five Years is produced by Brown, with Kurt Deutsch and Stacey Mindich serving as executive producers. The 2002 original cast recording of The Last Five Years – the label's first cast album – remains one of the label's best-selling titles.
Ghostlight Records is also producing a feature film based on the show, directed by Richard LaGravenese and starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. Read more about the film adaptation here. In addition, the label has preserved both the Broadway and London cast recordings of Brown's 13 – The Musical, as well as his solo album "Wearing Someone Else's Clothes."
The Last Five Years played an extended engagement through May 18. (It was originally scheduled through April 21.) Previews began March 7, prior to an official opening April 2, at Second Stage's Tony Kiser Theatre.
