The Last Five Years tickets
After numerous Off-Broadway and international productions as well as a film adaptation starring Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick, The Last Five Years finally arrives on the West End.
Written and directed by Tony Award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown, The Last Five Years is a two-character musical that tracks the emotional course of young love. Jamie and Cathy are two twenty-something New Yorkers. Cathy is struggling to find work and Jamie is an aspiring author who is suddenly offered an incredible book deal. As their paths begin to diverge the young lovers’ relationship also begins to shift and change.
An emotional and intimate musical, The Last Five Years eschews the traditional formula of musical theatre and introduces a distinct, new structure that sees Jamie move forwards through the relationship and Cathy move backwards, with both characters meeting briefly on stage as their stories intertwine. The wonderful Samantha Barks (Les Misérables) and Jonathan Bailey (Broadchurch) sing their hearts out in this London production of a musical that continues to be embraced by theatre-goers around the world.

The play was phenomenal!! As a fan of the musical, I would say I had "high" expectations; and the two leads lived up to them all. Would highly recommend for fans and new watchers alike- it's a very smart, funny and emotional play.
Very good musical. Amazing voices. Absolutely loved it would definitely recommend!
I've seen this show in the States at least 5 times. This stands up against all of them. No one will ever replace Norbert Leo Butz, but Jonathan Bailey comes damn close. Fascinating to see it directed by the genius that is Jason Robert Brown. Do NOT miss it!
This was a treat. The clever structure told from the 2 leads POV was excellent. Barks has the most exquisite voice and Bailey was just so likeable. SUPERB
A fantastic show
I loved the show, a really nice theatre, outstanding performances from the musicians and cast, amazing singing and came away wanting to watch it again, would definitely recommend it to my friends and family and hope to come back soon.
Let me begin by saying, to the lady who fell over at the start... hope you're OK! (Ooohhhh) The show itself was phenomenal and the leads where outstanding in both character and vocals. They both made some challenging songs seem like a walk in the park. Incredible.
Really glad I chose to see this show - was worried I'd be seeing understudies having booked the matinee but I was so glad I got to see Samantha and Jonathan live! Had to take a mental step back for a moment and realise I was watching them live and in person! Amazing show, ridiculously talented, loved the staging!
We were so impressed by this very moving performance, which was broken up by some very funny bits. The music was lovely and wow can they both sing!!! Definitely the best thing I have seen in the theatre for a while. Thank you for a lovely evening.
Lovely (short) musical - very simple, but very moving, with beautiful music and great singers and musicians (good to be able to see them).
Fantastic little theatre, lovely staff and great views... Amazing musical, was really easy to get lost in the emotion. Would definitely recommend...
I travelled down to see his show from the North East, it is my favourite musical and I wouldn't miss it. It was stunning! Excellent band, acting was so believable, loved the interpretation of Jamie. Not a bad seat in the house and so intimate you couldn't lose focus! I'm MDing the show next year and have been inspired completely. I was lucky enough to meet JRB himself too which made the day extra special.
A truly fantastic performance of a brilliant score. We thoroughly enjoyed every second.
This musical is a must-see and this revival is absolutely flawless. Great staging, and fantastic performers. If you have a chance, grab a ticket! I had organized a one-day trip from France just to see them, and it was definitely worth it.
