Jason Robert Brown's The Last Five Years, starring Adam Kantor and Betsy Wolfe, opens Off-Broadway April 2. In anticipation of the production's opening, looks back at Brown's career with songs from The Last Five Years, Parade, Songs for a New World and more.

Due to ticket demand, The Last Five Years has been extended through May 12 at Second Stage Theatre. Brown directs his semi-autobiographical work that stars Wolfe as struggling actress Cathy Hyatt, who falls in love with on-the-rise Jewish novelist Jamie Wellerstein, played by Kantor.
