The Last Five Years
by Penfold Theatre Company

Mar. 19 - Apr. 12, 2015

Never stop falling in love. The emotionally powerful story of two 20-something New Yorkers who dive head first into a marriage fueled by the optimism that comes with finding “the one.” But in a city where professional and personal passions collide and only the strongest relationships survive, navigating the waters of love and matrimony can sometimes prove too much. Funny, honest, and intimate, with an exuberantly romantic score, the Drama Desk Award-winning story explores the delicacy of love.

The Last Five Years

Music and lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Directed by Michael McKelvey
Featuring Sara Burke and David Gallagher
At Trinity Street Theatre

In honor of the recent motion picture release and the five year anniversary of our original sell-out run in 2009, Penfold revives The Last Five Years as its first and perhaps most cherished chamber musical production.

Running time: 90 minutes with one intermission.
For high school age and up.


Reviews from the original 2009 production:
-Austin-American Statesman

"Forgive me for gushing, but this is the sort of production that audiences are lucky to see: unique, intimate, beautiful, painful and wonderful."
-Austin-American Statesman

"This is a piece with feeling, sophistication, and great entertainment value. Highly recommended."
-Austin Live Theatre

"Every joy, every disappointment registers in vivid, personal detail... a tribute to director and musical director Michael McKelvey, who has crafted a tender, wistful anatomy of a relationship."
-Austin Chronicle
