The Last Five Years

When: Jan. 22-Feb. 14 2009

PURE Theatre may be known for edgy drama and comedy, but lately they’re performing to a new tune. Their first offering of 2009 takes on the challenge of musical theater with Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years. This Off-Broadway hit is about two New Yorkers who fall in and out of love over the course of five years. Her story starts at the end of their relationship, his starts on the very first day they meet, and the lovers only have one scene together. It’s a tale we all know, and best of all, it’s set to music. The Last Five Years is the winner of two Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Music and Outstanding Lyrics and was cited as one of Time magazine’s 10 Best of 2001. If the economy has you down, don’t be deterred — you can still take that special someone out for a night at the theater. PURE is offering three opportunities to see The Last Five Years at a discounted price: Jan. 21, 22, and Feb. 11 are their “Pay-What-You-Can” nights. Parents, B.Y.O. Baby night is Feb. 1, with free childcare provided by the church’s trained nursery staff. —Candice Summers
