Directed by Debbie Slevin, who also directed the first New York City revival of Brown's Songs for a New World in 2008, the 8 PM performance will be held in the John Drew Theater at Guild Hall.
Julie Reiber, whose Broadway credits include Wicked, Brooklyn, All Shook Up and the recent revival of On a Clear Day…, will star as Cathy, an actress looking for love and trying to find work. Matt DeAngelis, who was seen on Broadway in Hair and on tour with American Idiot, will play Jamie, an up-and-coming novelist whose life takes off when he finds Cathy.
The Last Five Years, according to Greymatters, "is an emotionally powerful, sometimes funny but deeply intimate musical about two twenty-something New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years."
The musical, which won the 2002 Drama Desk Award for music and lyrics, premiered at the Minetta Lane Theatre with Sherie Rene Scott and Norbert Leo Butz. As previously announced, the musical will receive a 2013 New York revival by Second Stage Theatre.
